General Courtesy Rules
You can always determine the degree of culture of a person by his behavior. It's nice to talk with a well-mannered person, but rude, vulgar speech leaves the worst impression.
What is politeness
Everyone is a social being. People communicate with each other, create families, become colleagues. All members of society deserve respect. In order to avoid conflicts, resentment, annoyance, a polite treatment was made between the interlocutors.
Courtesy is the ability to tactfully communicate, listen carefully to a different point of view, show tolerance, and the ability to resolve conflict situations in a peaceful way. Politeness and decency is the very tool through which people feel comfortable, free when communicating with their own kind.
From childhood, everyone knows the "magic words": thank you, hello, sorry, sorry, thank you. Tact begins with politeness. This is an international norm. If a quality such as delicacy is considered innate, then you can learn a good tone. Polite people know that it is always necessary:
- saying goodbye;
- ask for forgiveness (when a mistake is made, or cause inconvenience to the interlocutor);
- be interested (that is, provide the necessary minimum attention, for example, ask: "How are you?");
- do not elbow passers-by in order to get somewhere;
- Do not interrupt the interlocutor, especially if he is older in age;
- Do not shout to a friend who is in the distance.
The best indicator of a man’s good manners is his restraint. The violent manifestation of negative emotions in people is completely unacceptable.
How to become polite
The rules of courtesy to a child are instilled from childhood. The first teachers are always parents. In the morning, children and parents say to each other: “good morning,” in the afternoon, “good afternoon,” and in the evenings, “good night.” Disputes at home are resolved verbally. Raised parents analyze the causes of conflict, behavioral errors, explain to the child why he is wrong. The child should give examples of what should be done in a particular situation. So they prepare little people for adulthood in society.
Psychologists say: if you start the moral education of a child from 2-3 years old, then they are already 2-3 years late. Children take an example from the closest people. They imitate mom and dad, and it starts with diapers.
Courtesy and attentiveness of the interlocutor are of particular value. Warmth and goodwill help a person to open up, to show their best qualities. Rudeness, ignorance, rudeness offend human dignity, cause moral harm to the individual. The offended person closes in himself, stops contacting with the offender. Japanese psychologists have long noticed that a polite person will always be safe, and boorish and rude will necessarily get into trouble.
Courteous behavior helps a person to acquire new useful contacts, have many friends, pals and friends. Parents, in order to teach the child etiquette, need to be patient themselves, not to put pressure on the child, not to scream. You can discuss the characters of the books read, analyze their behavior.
Manners of secular behavior prohibit any indecency. You should always be polite during a conversation.
