I’m a mom of two boys, and as a parent, it’s my job to teach my children all the many lessons that will help them develop into a successful, happy adult one day. For instance, I always try to show them the importance of manners, especially at the table. Don’t talk with food in your mouth, take your hat off, use your napkin, blah, blah, blah. See, when I was a little girl my mother and grandmother enrolled me in manners school… No I’m not Southern, and no it was definitely not normal in the town I grew up in. But nonetheless, I went to manners school and learned how to cut my food, write a proper thank you note, and most importantly, how to sit in a dress. This was very pressing stuff for a 7 year old. Even though I probably thought it was absolutely ridiculous at the time, those lessons have stuck with me and helped shape the woman I am today. I mean, where would I be in life without knowing the correct way to cut a piece of meat? … just kidding.
