How can I teach my child table manners?

Tea for Two

To help your child practice table manners, try having regular tea parties. Sit at a child-sized table and serve juice and cookies. Serve refreshments only to those who remember to say "please" and "thank you" and who ask to be excused when necessary. Since teatime is a lot less hectic than dinnertime, it is a great time to teach table manners!
