      When people do things differently from your family because of diversity in culture, race, or religion, you must show your respect.
    • Waiting your turn to talk.
      It is advisable not to interrupt other people when talking. It would be nice to wait until someone is done speaking and then ask your question.
    • Telephone Manners.
      When calling a friend, identify yourself to the person who answers the phone and ask ‘how are you’ before asking to speak your friend. By doing so, the parents or other family member who answer the phone will appreciate this courtesy and see you as friendly.
    • Say, “Please” and “Thank you” often.
      It shows respect and appreciation and if they thanked you, then say, “You’re welcome”. Always greet someone when they come over to your house.
    • Be Gracious.
      When you are sent an invitation that requires an RSVP, be sure to let the person know if you will be able to go to the gathering. After all, “RSVP” means “respond if you please.”
    • Be Open to New Foods.
      When you are invited out to eat and are served a food that is not your favourite, try a piece of it anyway. Avoid speaking about the food in a way that might be insulting or disrespectful.

      Whether at home or at a friend’s house, always clean up after yourself and keep your room or space tidy at all times.
    • Ask Questions and Listen.
      When talking with friends and family, always make a point of asking them questions about themselves. You will engage yourself easily and leave a good impression. It is essential as well to be a good listener.
    • Exiting and Entering.
      Allow those in the room, building or elevator to exit first before entering.
    • Playing games.
      After playing a game, no matter the outcome, be pleasant. If you win do not gloat. Do not show off but be kind. If you lose, don’t get mad, but you may say to the rest of the team “it was a good game”.
