I scanned this from a book called Health Safety & Manners (1983). I don't know about you, but I love my kids dearly and feel they are good kids.... but they have never, not once, followed the rules above.
Are you kidding me? Not only do my kids break that rule, but every kid I've ever seen in the grocery store does the same thing. They are all bitching, whining, begging, and just talking incessantly. Are kids today more badly behaved than 27 years ago.... or is this just an example of wishful thinking back in the early eighties?"I walk quietly beside my mother"
"I do not handle things on the shelves"Ummmm. Once again, this is just not happening at any of the grocery stores I've visited. Their grubby hands are all over everything in every aisle. Again I ask - was this a fantasy world, or have things changed that much? Personally, I think they were better behaved back then. My memory is not perfect, but I don't think kids were quite like they are today in public places.
Read on to gaze in wonder at a few more pages from Health, Safety, & Manners. Enjoy.
