Do you fret about taking your child out? Worry they might do or say something inappropriate or otherwise embarrass you? Here’s how to ensure they make the right first impression
Teach 'please' and 'thank you'
Aside from hearing your toddler say ‘Mummy’ or ‘Daddy’, one of the most endearing things you can hear is ‘please’ or ‘ta’. It’s never too soon to teach these basic niceties, and your little one will charm all those around them if they’re in the practice of saying them – especially if they can do it unprompted!
Practise often – and set an example by always remembering to use them yourself, even with your immediate family, who are too often taken for granted!
