Begin with the Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Corrine Gregory believes that's the first step in teaching manners to children. "If you go back to the Golden Rule, you will be able to get through situations and not embarrass yourself or other people," says Gregory, founder and director of The PoliteChild in Seattle. "It's about making people feel special, how to leave a positive impression rather than a negative one. " A child who is taught to think of others' feelings will learn how to practice kindness, consideration and empathy, says Gregory, who teaches children, tweens and teens good behavior, manners and etiquette.

Letters to the Editor Contest come-ons To the editor: Some time ago I read an article in the paper about a man from California who thought he had won a contest and how much money he spent buying books and how much money he spent going to Florida to pick up a winning check. I don't know for sure if anyone else has ever sent in one of these or not, but to me this is only a come-on. I barely receive enough to cover my stamp; I did not order anything. They can always come up with a gimmick to egg someone on. Let me tell you one thing, I cashed their old 34-cent check.

OK, so the end of the world didn't happen. Hmm. Time to regroup. Now what? 1. I guess I have to keep being a nice guy. I have a fantasy of being Bill Murray's character in “Scrooged” for like a week ... 2. I suppose I won't give a dirty look to the woman who just butted in front of me in line at the post office. 3. Figure out how to pay for that 90-inch plasma TV and gold-plated toilet I just purchased on QVC using an 18.9 percent interest-rate credit card I thought I would never have to pay. 4. Take back my generators and 16 packs of “D” batteries.
