Book Review - Manners that Matter for Moms - I'm Giving One Away!

Yes, Manners That Matter for Moms: The Essential Book of Life Skills for Your Kids is a book about manners so moms will know how to help their children know everything they need to, as Maralee McKee the author says, "equip their kids to flourish in their relationships." But, just because it is written by a mom for moms, don't think there isn't a wealth of much needed information for dads, grandparents and teachers, to use with our children and grandchildren . . . and with ourselves, because there is! Manners is not about a list of do's and don'ts which you only need in the most formal of situations. It is not just about knowing when to say please, thank you and excuse me. Maralee says manners are about, "developing the interpersonal skills which will help them become the best versions of themselves they can be in any setting." We all need to know how to do this, for sure!

In Manners that Matter for Moms, Maralee shares some of her own story which is sure to touch and encourage you; and show you the love, grace and power of our amazing God! She then covers everything from how to make a "five-star first impression", to what to say and how to say it, to bathroom and bodily noise etiquette, to dining do's and don'ts - and so much more! If you ever wondered what to say or do, how to say or do it and when not to say it or do it, this book will give you the answers! Plus, Maralee, in her sweet, kind and gracious way, shares this much needed information as a friend! What more could you want?! 

This is a book you can recommend to your family and friends! It is a book for you to read as well. Watch for the release of Manners that Matter for Moms, October 1, 2012 and while you wait for this book to show up on the shelves at your local book store, take a moment to check out Maralee's blog and her facebook page and become part of her Manner's Mentor family . . . you'll be so glad you did!
