Brilliant guide for raising children!

This is actually a first for me in the non-fiction category, and it is certainly not the sort of thing I plan to listen to one time and then just put aside. There is so much useful advice packed in here that it actually sort of overwhelmed me the first time through, and now I'm working on listening to it again.

I don't have children (yet!) but it still made me think back to all of the things my parents did to raise me and my brother and gave me a better insight about their actions, intentional or unintentional, and the effects they had on us.

I consider myself to be a life-long learner, so that was one message I truly appreciated in the book, because I think it is important for everyone!

This was an excellent thing to listen to, and I will doubtless go back to it again and again for advice for making my children more culturally aware and interested. If you have kids, no matter the age, you should check this out! The narrator was amazing and the content engaging. Easy 5-star!

Great book about Etiquette for Modern Times

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, For some of my Mom friend's with young men. To teach manners in a way that applies to them specifically.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Overall all the tips in the book were very informative, well described and applicable.

Have you listened to any of Madonna Lucey’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No I haven't. She has a very precise and soothing voice.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

This is something that if you start with young kids will follow them into adulthood:

"Getting your child involved in the community has many benefits. It will help him to become knowledgeable about local culture and customs, and it will keep him up on current events in the area as well. It also allows him to personal bonds with the people in his environment. There are many ways to get your child involved. Fairs, festivals and community performances are some of the many events in which he can participate."

Social and community involvement are something lacking in our strictly online society today. I am glad the author added this to the book.

Any additional comments?

Each chapter starts with a quote and I like that it sets the tone for the next reading parts.The tips and descriptions of etiquette and teaching young children are easy to comprehend.I enjoyed this audio book very much.
