Out here where I live, manners are still very much in place, but not everybody has them. I think it all depends on how one was raised. If a child
sees their parents have common courtesy and go out of their way to help others in need, it rubs off on the kids.
I'm a baby boomer as well, and my children saw me go out of my way to help others, so they also do the same thing. It was never anything I said,
because, Lord knows, kids usually don't listen. However, they will mimic what they see growing up.
When you see rude children, know that their parents are probably also rather selfish and have never modeled proper, caring behavior. JMOHO, of
