Rules of Etiquette For Children (c.1950’s)

Rules of Etiquette For Children (c.1950’s)

A set of of suggested etiquette for children, published in the 1950’s.

I don’t know a single child alive today who adheres to more than one or two of these.

Can you imagine expecting this behavior – or teaching these rules in a classroom today? While I (as a parent) would appreciate it, I’m guessing you could count the minutes on one hand until a student’s parent was calling the office to complain.

Times have changed a lot in 50 years.
