How To Teach Kids Etiquettes
Children are often seen as a reflection of their parents. Good manners are nothing but the accumulation of habits that a person follows over the years. However, teaching kids etiquettes is easier said than done. Some of the things that Dora can teach your child are –
Saying The Magic Words: ‘Thank You’, ‘I’m Sorry’, ‘Please’, ‘Excuse Me’ are some of the magic words, yet extremely rare in the present era. What better example than Dora, the Explorer, who is always encouragingly kind towards her viewers during her adventures? For example – How she says, “Please”, to her viewers when she needs help in spotting something, and uses “Gracias” to thank for the help.
Being Polite to People: How important is it in today’s world to be polite to everyone around you? It is a basic act of social skills. Dora crosses another mile with her behaviour towards the people she meets on her way. No matter how they are, she addresses them with utmost kindness.
Greeting People: You can gift a great, short moment to anyone by just greeting them with a smile. Everyone has their way of greeting the people they meet, and it is unique from person to person. As Dora ensures she greets everyone with a “Hola!”, one must do the same in their own way as it can be enough to make someone’s day.
Helping People: It is a lovely trait to be around for people. One must never say no to a person who is in need unless they’re incapable of doing what is needed. Dora teaches us how to cross oceans for people by helping the ones she doesn’t even know. After all, even a small help is a great act of humanity.
Taking Help: People hesitate to take help from others because they feel shy or think they’ll be any lesser if they do so. Well, if a cartoon character as famous as Dora can take help from millions of her viewers, then so can you.
Encouraging People: Everyone has a point in life where they need a little push to move forward. That’s where encouragement is an utmost need from everyone or in fact anyone around you. Dora’s encouragement for the people she helps and to the viewers who help her by using words “Fantastic!” helps them understand the value of motivation.
Staying Positive: It is important for a child to feel that they can solve anything if they don’t lose heart and instead build courage. Dora’s “Never Give Up” attitude gives a good direction to a child on how to stay positive no matter how hard may the situation be.
