When it comes to behavior and meal time, we can always use some help. Whether the help you need is meal prep or clean up or getting the kids to the table on time or getting them to eat anything, likely someone you know is experiencing the same frustrations. I grew up in a Catholic and Italian family and my Grandparents were very strict on table manners. I would go to friends houses and wondered why it was such a big deal when parents would tell my Mom they are impressed with my manners. It was pounded into me that I thought every child knew the proper place settings and when to speak and how to eat politely. It was natural. Now I have all boys and I would be lying if I said I have practiced all manners with them.
I get in such a busy mode and then decide to choose my battles at dinnertime. Then I saw and researched a bit about this Table Manners game and how easy it is to get the kids to behave much better at meal time. I want them to be able to go to other houses and impress, not disappoint. I really feel proper manners are a sign of respect and I want nothing more than for my boys to respect any home they are in.
Table Manners is so simple and once you give the parent card a quick read, you are ready to practice better manners-or respect- at the dinner table. They offer a few ways you can use these cards to play some simple games that incorporate well into meal time and really begin a fun table talk. My son’s favorite is to be handed a few thumbs down and thumbs up cards and if we start him out with 2 quarters. If he is caught doing a thumbs down move he gives one back and if he is caught with a thumbs up move he gets another. This technique at money-driven age 7 has changed a few things. He thinks before he acts or speaks and he stays at the table longer as opposed to running out or getting up while eating. 
This is such a great gift to give any family with kids 4-teen! Even the older kids can use a reminder on how to portray the respect they would want to when at a guests house. They just may appreciate the quick lessons.
