How to remind parents to inculcate good habits in their children?


An individual who is well-mannered is always respected and welcomed by everyone, everywhere. A fact is that inculcating good manners should ideally be done by operation rather than any sort of formal training. And for children, home is the best place to teach them good manners, as doing so right from childhood, a toddler will imitate his/ her parents impeccably.

Therefore, as a teacher, it is important to remind parents to inculcate good habits in their children as proper discipline cannot be enforced, yet has to be taught. It is an understood fact that talking to parents in fluent English could get intimidating.

Tips when speaking to the parents about how to inculcate good habits in children:

1.While conversing with parents, you know you cannot go wrong with your spoken English communication skills, as you are the teacher and therefore it would be extremely wrong to not have a good hold over the English language.

2. If you find  difficulty in speaking in English, you should enroll in an English learning course online that will help better your communication skills and polish your English speaking fluency shortly.

Conversational Example:

Situation- It's the parent-teacher's meeting day and your principal has emphasized on reminding the parents' to work toward inculcating good manners in their children. How would you put this thought in front of the parents?

Teacher- Good morning parents!

Parents- Good morning.

Teacher- Thank you all for joining us in this parent-teacher meet. Though today we have no papers to show, we have gathered here to discuss some things that are vital for your child's future.

Ranjit- What exactly are we discussing, Ma'am?

Teacher- As you can see on the board, today we are asking you guys to join us in understanding the importance of inculcating good manners in your children.

Sheetal- Great! I would like to know more. I've tried to teach Sheena the basics, but she forgets to use them as and when required.

Teacher- Exactly. Children tend to ape what their parents do and hence the first step toward teaching your child good manners would be using them yourself. Not only you, but everyone at home should make it a point to not give your child what he/ she wants until you hear a 'please' from his/ her mouth.

Namita- Oh! That sounds promising. What else could we do, Ma'am?

Teacher- Always remember to correct them as and when they've forgotten to use a 'thank you', 'please', 'sorry' or 'excuse me'. Never give in to their stubbornness. For now, I would advise you to instill the basics and later you could teach them the deeper mannerisms that will help them throughout their lives. So, parents, we expect your full cooperation with teachers in inculcating good manners in each and every child, from today itself!

Parents- Certainly.

Teacher- Thank you all for coming and I hope to see a little change in every student from Monday.

Parents- Ha-ha! Definitely. Thank you, Ma'am.

That's about it! In simple English, you have managed to convince the parents' to get proactive and inculcate good manners in their children as well.
