Remind your children of these gestures of consideration and care for their neighbors.

Now that most kids are out of school for summer, it’s time for them to get outside and enjoy relaxing days with friends and family. While it’s wonderful to see our little (and not so little) angels running around without a care in the world, it’s important for them to still bear in mind a few summertime manners so that everybody gets to enjoy themselves, including the neighbors.

Click on launch slideshow below to discover a few basic manners to remind your kids of as they make the most of their break. A few will apply to mom and dad too!
