All week I've been frustrated about the constant fighting, screaming
and bickering going on between the children these past few weeks
and happened to see this book at the local library yesterday about
Peace Week in Miss Fox's Class by Eileen Spinelli, Illustrated by
Anne Kennedy. So I grabbed it and knew this would be the first
thing I would be reading to the younger two.
Although Loni thinks he's too grown up for these books, I think
he would learn a thing or two after hearing me read it.
Yesterday was a busy day, so I got the chance to read it to them
this morning along with some other books on how to teach your
children good manners. Don't get me wrong I teach my kids and
talk to them constantly, yet somehow I think it goes in one ear
and out the other.
The kids did like the book and I'm noticing more peace and quiet
in the house today. Thank goodness, let's hope that this lasts for
the remainder of the weekend and on to next week. :) Now on to
the teaching them good manners and proper etiquette book!

The kids enjoyed this book as well and started telling me the
other's mistakes and what they needed to improve on. I learned
a couple of things on here myself. It's a really useful book on raising
well mannered kids. Do you have any tips on what you do at home
with your children?
