Just as common sense is hardly common, good manners in today's world are almost extinct but are certainly treasured when on display.
Such topics as rules for dating, phone manners,
honor, getting attention, borrowing, being a hero, how to say you're sorry,explaining/complaining,
speaking to adults and gossip are just a few of the 40 plus items that are covered in this short, easy to read book. Example:
Nothing is quite as annoying as watching a friend's or neighbor's child grow from the toddling years to that of a teenager and find that as an adult you are now invisible to that teenager. You can be a rascal and a scoundrel, but much will be forgiven by an adult if you greet them with a friendly smile and a warm "hello".
How do you know if they see you? Real simple, if you see them, they can (and do) see you. Speak!
PS As my mother used to say, "...you'll never get even if you stop speaking". Always speak, even if you're mad at someone. It will keep them guessing and drive them nuts.
