A manners lesson for Paul & John

October 5, 2013

The kids are bopping around the living room to a Beatles compilation CD – a very common Saturday activity in our house.  Just a few minutes ago, Babess paused the CD and came in to tell us something.  “I want to hold your hand” was cut off mid-lyric.

“That’s not a good thing to say,” she told us.

“What’s not good?” we asked.

“That.  What they’re saying.  They’re saying “I want” and you shouldn’t say that.  They won’t get it!  They need to say “Please””.

We agreed, and she went back to turn the music on and keep dancing, secure in her understanding of modern manners.
