Expert:  proexpert37 replied 6 years ago.
Are you asking about proper general etiquette for an individual child or a group of children? Is this for a boy or a girl?
Customer: replied 6 years ago.
An individual child. A girl. Thanks.

Here are some ways that you can teach proper manners:


1. Role playing activities with the children and an adult in targeted scenarios.


2. Adults should always model the desired behavior in public and private settings. Children are like sponges at 3 years of age and will model what adults do.


3. When in a certain situations, politely remind the children to exhibit the desired behavior. Consistency if the key.


4. Read books geared toward ages 3-5 about manners.


5. Watch kid friendly videos about manners.


6. Ask the child what they would do or say if.....


I hope that this has helped. Please ACCEPT. Have a great day!!!

P.S.. I was reading over your question again...Did you mean "manners" or "limits?" I f it was limits, I can assist you with that as well but I hope I answered the question correctly.
