What would you do if you told your children it's bad manners to talk with food in their mouth yet a friend & their parents do it all the time, or kids who don't ask nicely or say thank you, yet you scold your own child for not asking nicely or saying thank you when you're at the 'bad manners" house? I don't want the other mom to think I'm looking down on her children, but my children know not to do certain things, which of course at a young age when one child does something the others just seem to follow. Just calling my child's name will get them to remember what they are doing and stop. Would you get the hint of it was your child with the bad manners and a friend kept telling their own children to stop talking w/food in their mouth, etc.?
