Yesterday, one of the higher ups in my husbands company came over for dinner, and my son who is normally pretty shy and wont even speak to someone he doesnt know was quite the charmer. I was at first quite surprised at how quickly Tyler warmed up to him, but what floored me even more was that the manners i have been trying to instill in him came out and shone through! It was yes please this, and no thank you or thank you left and right, I was amazed, and even more amazed when later that evening when my husband and i were relaxing before bed he mentioned to me that the gentleman who came over had paid our son, and us the biggest compliment (or one of the biggest compliments in this day and age!) He said that our son was by far one of the most polite and well behaved children he had ever met. Now i am trying to figure out a special treat for him, any suggestions??? I want one that is going to reinforce this phenomenal behavior, can anyone suggest and good books on the topic or maybe some other positive treat???
