Monday Manners Quote:

“So, why are so many people lacking in an understanding of the rules? No one has ever taught them!”
John J. Daly Jr., The Key Class

These days, I think that may be truly the case.  A generation of children has been brought up without the understanding of the “rules” (really guidelines) of polite society, or think that the rules are outdated or no longer valid.  Really, the “rules” help grease the rough edges of 21st century civilization.  Kids see rude behavior dressed up as funny on the TV channels and it takes a strong mama (or mama-figure) to help kids weed out appropriate to laugh at on TV, versus appropriate to say to your own teacher at school on Monday.
