Do You Teach Your Children Manners?

In our church in Seattle (mainly Asian) and here in the Philippines, children are taught manners, to answer when spoken to, to be polite especially to elders, to have a conversation, etc.

This is not so with many other nationalities, even missionary children. We talk about the difficulties missionary children have; well, much of this is simply brought on by not being properly taught by their parents! In learning simple manners (Christ's kindness in action) and immediate obedience, children will have a better opportunity for success in life and growth in holiness. As one learns obedience from his/her parents, it is much easier to obey God in the future.
