I know I don't deserve your advice since I have been such a lame blog buddy but I need some experienced opinions.
Now that my kids are getting older they are spending more and more time going to their friends houses ALONE! I can't really tag along on the playdates anymore without looking like a total moron. I have always been very strict with my kids when it comes to manners but wonder if it has gone in one ear and out the other like it seems is the fate of so many other lessons. I always ask how they behaved and if they used their manners and I have never heard anything bad but I know I wouldn't tell another parent their kids is a rude brat!
So anyway here's my question:
What do you do to ensure your kids are on their best behaviour when they're away from you?
How do you give your child the tools to be the good influence in a situation rather than being easily swayed?
I'm excited to hear all your wisdom...if anyone's out there...hello...anyone....hellooo
