Don't interrupt adults (unless it's absolutely necessary)
Parents are very mindful these days of trying to spend more time with their children and perhaps are too attentive to their needs. While it's great to be hands on, it's important for children to know that they sometimes aren't at the center of your attention. If your chatting to a friend and a child runs in demanding an ice cream, let them know it's not appropriate to either interrupt adults (unless it's an emergency) or demand anything! A little "excuse me" and "may I have" go a long way!
