Read an Excerpt

If we begin with the following principles that lay the groundwork of goodheartedness, we will have a better understanding of the significance of teaching manners and etiquette: In defining manners as an attitude of the heart that is self-giving, not self-serving, we can teach our children that manners come from the heart, not from memorizing a set of rules; Parenting to only build a child's self-esteem can result in a selfish child. Parenting to help a child build self-respect will result in a selfless child. Manners of the Heart at Home is not about forcing your child to memorize a burdensome set of rules. This approach to training children is about helping your child gain humble confidence through learning the delicate balance between self-esteem and self-respect. Mastering and maintaining this balance will help establish a solid foundation, which will carry your child into adolescence with ease.
