mom rules Many of us have sat in a restaurant, a movie theatre or perhaps you noticed this phenomenon just walking down the street. I am referring to the ill mannered child. The child that doesn’t seem to be aware that others feelings need to be considered when it comes to behavior.

Virtually every bad behavior you can think of… talking back, interrupting, stealing, violence, and overall rudeness all have one thing in common… bad manners. Manners are literally at the heart of whether or not a child makes a good decision or a bad one when it comes to how they will choose to behave. It also has a great deal to do with how that child will succeed as an adult later in life.

One of the biggest offenders of bad behavior in kids is interrupting. It is one of the first ill mannered behaviors that kids engage in and it is also one of the easiest to get a handle on. Here are some tips on how to curb this bad habit early on, even as young as three years old.
