Have you ever cringed at the sight of your four-year-old waltzing through the neighbors front door without an invitation? Have you ever had to call to apologize when your six-year-old forgot to thank his grandmother for the birthday gift she so lovingly sent? How about the formal dinner for Dads promotion when your ten-year-old decided that she didnt like the meal shed ordered, and then refused to eat a thing—making for an uncomfortable evening for you, the other guests, and the waiter?
