    Manners That Matter for Moms covers the most important topics in child rearing in a light and informative way. The book was reassuring for me and is sure to be a blessing for moms who want what is best for their children. At some point, we all come to the end of instructing our children and let them go into the world to make their own decisions. It’s nice to see that our hard work of setting examples and instructing helps children become great adults. This book is a wonderful compass for moms.

    What a joy it is for me to endorse Maralee’s new book on manners. I feel very strongly that America needs this information and encouragement so moms (and dads!) can teach their kids proper behavior. Maralee, in her warm, practical, and up-to-date style, shares skills children will need in order to flourish in our current culture. Young adults who haven’t been exposed to these skills while growing up could also use this book. Regardless of your age, it will help you gain confidence in all your relationships. This information is broader than just etiquette. It takes so little to be above average, and this book will help you do that.

    Manners matter and since our children will live in our homes only 21 percent of our lifetimes, it’s essential that we reach them through simple daily connection points. In a time when manners seem all but forgotten, your children will have huge advantage if you show them how to carry themselves wisely. Maralee McKee will teach you how to do that in this practical life-application resource, which systematically guides parents in building extremely successful kids.
