Are you Classy?


No this has nothing to do with Charlie's post, but we were thinking the same things.
Recently I've had my sons come across awkward situations that make me think..
Do people not have class anymore?
What do I mean by that?
I mean;
When talking about personal things, keep it to yourself.
Remember the age of those around you when you make comments....SERIOUSLY!
Teach your boys to respect girls... especially in their actions.  I know boys are funny when they start liking girls, but keep the comments of embarrassment at home...it's an awkward stage...That's why they go on missions!~
The same goes for girls...try to act like a lady in both your dress and your actions.
With almost having all my sons in High School or through high school, it's been interesting to see what the conversations have been with their friends or with those they eat lunch with.
Oh my GOSH!
Parents...we really need to nip this in the bud!
So, let's remember what our parents/grandparents would do or how they were raised.
If we need to go back to the beginning ourselves, then let's do it.

I completely agree! I volunteer for Girl Scouts and some of the things that pop out of SEVEN year olds makes me think "Really? Have you learned NOTHING from Girl Scouts??" Shape up parents!

I COMPLETELY AGREE! As a mother that will one day have THREE teenage daughters, this is something I feel very strongly about. Even in this day and age, being CLASSY will never be out of style. I agree with you whole heartedly. Thank you for the reminder.
