With Christmas coming, they seem to be getting a slightly more demanding, naturally, but it isn’t welcome. Give please a chance came in the mail just as we started our Please and Thank you Jar.
Dash and Sunny each have their own jar and their own pile of felt balls. When they go out of their way to say please, thank you, or simply be kind to someone they get to toss a ball into the jar.

Here are a couple pages:Join a long with as us we do our best to make this world a happier place by raising children with manners better than our own.
