Because That's What Gentlemen Do!
Teresa "Mama T" Schimandle, author
Over the past few years, I, "Mama T" realized that people noticed when a child used manners rather than in the past where people noticed when they didn't. I started telling my grandson the polite things to do, like open a door for a lady. One day he opened the door for me and I said, "Thank You Curtis," and he said, "Of Course, Grandma, that's what gentlemen do!" So began the spinning of this story, and now I am sharing it with you. It's a story about manners for young boys.
