Children should corteia his older brothers, their parents, to visitors.
When we are well educated.
Example. At Maria there is a couch and chairs in the dining room. A large table, with his brazier below and above the table, a lamp. When Mary comes home from school, climb the ladder quickly.
It has not yet reached his father, and his mother is, as always, busy thousand chores.
Mary rushes on the comfortable armchair and installed to study. But … the doorbell rings, and goes Ignacio, a law student. Mary feels respect for him. He gets up (making a sacrifice) and gave him the chair.
– Do not move, Mary says Ignacio.
– But I do not need it if the chair to study, he says, smiling, as she sits in a chair.
Ten minutes later comes the father, and, of course, Ignacio cedes the chair.
Spend a little while, and enters his mother. All rise to greet her, and organized a little family get-together. Now is the lady of the house occupied by the comfortable armchair, and Mary, giving, giving, has remained in a chair, very stiff. You can not study with the conversation; and collecting his things and goes to his solitary little room to finish his studies there.
Where are you going, Maria?, says his father. Come on my knees, I’ll explain your problems.
This is the story of the chair. A silly story, but it’s a small scene familiar courtesy. Today they are all friendly at Maria. So glad. It seems to us a boring story. But at Maria all are warm, happy and delighted to make small sacrifices for one another.
We are well educated when we sacrifice ourselves for one another, in small things. But there are some fixed rules of education, and these rules are fixed courtesy.
Courtesies, around the seat.
A girl or little boy, who must give the seat?. For people who are superior in age and category. Children should this courtesy to their older siblings, parents, visits. When they go on a train or tram will give up their seat to older persons who are standing. Girls will not give up the seat to men unless they are old or are sick.
Our courtesy at home.
It is in the home, in family life, which we must exercise courtesy.
When our father or mother back from the street, we will get up and say hi.
Not because we have quarreled (for not knowing the lesson), we get home and answer desabrimientos our parents or our brothers take revenge on something we cause ourselves.
Parents should respect and obedience.
It respects parents paying attention to all your wishes and interests, even without being told. Meeting their needs, speaking with deference. Not attacking their opinions and not answering their rebukes.
Father or mother is transferred the best chair or the best place.
Parents are given the good morning when you wake up and good night at bedtime. You are greeted upon entering and before leaving home.
They are due pleasantly, without pouting, a warm and cheerful manner. Parents do not want more than our good, although not seem to us well or our liking what they send us.
We will not deny laziness or because we are playing or reading the small favor (as an errand) we ask a person …
Do not interrupt the elderly.
When there visit at home, even visit some friends, not irrumpiremos in the living room or family room like a whirlwind; and if we have to go to ask or say something necessary, ask for permission from the door.
When my mother speaks with another elderly person, I will not interrupt you abruptly. I can say, “Mom, forgive a moment …” If she says “now,” or “wait a minute”, wait without stamping feet on the ground and snorting …
