At my weekly playgroup, on my online mums group and in my home I hear all the time "I would never speak to an adult the way kids do today, I don't remember being taught the RIGHT way to speak to an adult when I was a kid but I just did it!".I totally agree with this sentiment. I don't remember how this was taught to me, so I don't know how to teach this to my children. As a parent this is a concern to me. It is a concern I have also heard raised by grandparents.
