Parenting technique shown in a drugstore

I was in one of the outlets of Mercury Drug the other night. I ran out of vitamins for my children. While I was waiting for my turn to be served, my attention was captured by the monitor displayed just right in front of the counter. My attention was caught by some parenting tips on how to raise a polite child. I'm number 15 and the pharmacists are currently attending to number 7. I opted to watch the video clips. The video showed some helpful tips in raising a polite child. First, it says that parents must practice what they preach. They must set a good example to their children. Next, teach your child to say thank you. It's best to teach your kids while they are young so that when they are already old, they will not depart from it. Let them appreciate small things and big things. They must not laugh at others disability. Let your children realize that a NO is a NO. Be consistent and firm. Maintain an open communication with your child.

I would say that videos of these sort being shown in public places such as a drugstore is a good move by the management. This is very beneficial to the would be parent and parents. A lot of mistakes in parenting have been committed everyday. It's never too late to start educating the people. I hope that other public establishments will follow what mercury drug is doing.
