September is National Children's Good Manners Month and the perfect opportunity to make sure your kids know how to mind their p's and q's. Numerous studies have found that kids with good manners do better in school and are more popular.

The American Academy of Pediatrics offers advice on teaching manners at www.aap.org/en-us/Documents/ttb_bring_out_best.pdf.

Scholastic recommends books about good manners on its site, www.scholastic.com/parents/resources/book-list/life-experiences-values/read-them-and-please-books-about-manners.
