Not bad. A lot of it seems a bit too much. I want nice children but not a cold relationship. I was hoping for tips on how to teach manners in a fun way. Everything is covered here; all a bit obvious, but no real tips given.

Because it gives you concise, constructive, age appropriate manners. We could set appropriate standards/expectations and we could follow through and enforce them. Mealtime has become much more enjoyable.
