    It's wonderful that you're trying to instill these timeless etiquette rules in your young son. The world needs more parents like you, Tam. ♥

    My son is 28 and he stands up when a woman approaches a table, pulls out chairs, opens car doors and gives me his arm to cross the street. I started with him at age 3 being polite, good table manners and all that, and went from there. Now it is second nature to him; but he does not make it seem condescending, just being polite and being well mannered. My sister did the same thing and her son is the same way -- part of the encouragement for them both was knowing girls love it! Glad to see other people do this, too!

    Hi Kathy, it is thoroughly wonderful that you and your sister decided early on to raise your sons with such excellent, timeless manners. It must be an unexpectedly terrific treat for the ladies in each of these fine gentlemen's lives to be treated so politely and courteously.

    Thank you, Jessica! that is very kind of you . I don't know if it works with everyone (kids have a lot of peer pressure these days, unfortunately, and some kids personalities reject it as uncool) but it seemed to work with our kids. My mom was British, though, and she was very firm about manners so it might have played into the equation! :-D

    You're very welcome, Kathy. How lovely that your mother hailed from the UK - I have distant ancestral ties to that country through one of my paternal great-grandmothers.

I sense that cutting in might not be a wise idea. #vintage #WW2 #1940s #magazine #covers

    Navy sailor trying to cut in on a Marine's dance. Not so sure I would wanna see how that turned out.

    It would be a brazen (verging on foolish) thing to do for sure! Thank you for commenting on this pin, Rachael.
