|Momma teaching manners|
OK, so this conversation's train of thought just jumped the track! What did she mean I didn't teach her manners?
I had to give her a chance to get this straight. So I ask, "Well, didn't your momma teach you anything?"
Her response? "Yes, my momma taught me math."
Whew! At least I taught her something! But thanks to the wonderful world of Facebook, some friends gave me some insight into this discussion.
First, she's obviously learned manners from us, but it's happened so naturally that she doesn't realize it. Isn't that great? It also means, that we have to make sure to set the example and be consistent.
Second, my friend Deb pointed out that manners are math. After all, Love of God + love of neighbor = manners! Isn't that a wonderful math equation?
So, apparently you can teach math and manners at the same time, and the best way to do it is naturally, so it just becomes part of them.
Just sharing it as I'm learning it!
