Silly Saturdays: Politely impolite


I feel particularly strong about manners, especially when it comes to Smera. We have been guiding her on how to be polite and making sure she understands the concept of words like ‘Please’, ‘Thank you’ and ‘Sorry’. She sometimes needs a little reminder, but even then she has now completely mastered the concept of using these words.

Yesterday she got a little upset with my mum over a petty issue and I suddenly find myself as a spectator to this conversation

Smera: Go away Ammamma!
Mum: That’s not a nice thing to say
Smera: Pushing my mum, she repeats once again “Go away Ammamma!’’
Mum: Now that is really rude darling!
Smera: trying in her best polite voice “Go away Ammamma PLEASE”

With no other option my mum had to give in to the argument as the conversation no longer was impolite with a gentle use of the word ‘Please’.
