    set the example for them and dont get upset about anything or little delays. make sure they have naps before we hit the stores and that they ate and went to the bathroom. Also,always plan something fun for after we are done… or take a break from shopping for late lunch or dinner. Make it time out for us. Include them in your thought processes as well, what your thinking of getting so and so.. sometimes kids have a better insight to what someone would want as they tend to spend more time with them when your working.

    FIrst, by example. But starting at age 2yrs old, I’ve read Manner books, such as “The Polite Elephant” and alot of Berenstain Bears books to teach her manners, values, and morals.
