A Stitch in Time
The saying “Good manners are the stitches that hold the fabric of society together” also applies to the home front. Happy households are safe places where individual actions and words build up others, rather than tear down. Etiquette insists upon such behavior regardless of temperment and mood. Parents and teachers set the example and lead the way. A good education weaves etiquette instruction into the woof and warp of everyday life. Teaching children considerate social behavior prepares them for living better with other people.
