Young kids are super cute and funny right up until that moment when they burp loudly into the face of a dinner guest or won’t share any of their toys on a play date, though there are more than enough to go around.
Teaching a little human being to have manners can be challenging and becomes just one more thing that you have to manage on you list of parenting to-do’s.
To help alleviate some of the stress and to make this particular life lesson fun and painless for all involved, here are three top apps that will help you to instill good manners into your child.
A Quest for Good Manners
This app features a rude princess named Rosalind who has a rude pet dragon named Sparkler. From making bodily function noises to showcasing temper tantrums, yep, they’re pretty rude. Their bad behavior gets them banished by the queen from the castle until they learn good manners. Smart animation makes this app engaging and fun and it includes true and false facts to reinforce learning good manners.

Little Steps To Good Habits
What we love about this app is that it takes manners further than “please, thank you and excuse me.” It actually talks about kids playing too rough and teasing. It does all of this in a fun way that lets kids play along and choose to make–hopefully the right–decisions as they go.
Cost: $1.99 on iTunes
Maddie and Matt’s A to Z’s of Good Manners And Values
We really dig the animation and cartoon style of this very popular app. This app lets two cartoon characters, Maddie and Matt, help your kids learn respect, politeness, courtesy and gratitude with an “A to Z’s of Good Manners & Values.” The characters are placed in a variety of scenarios where they must learn how to exhibit the proper manners at the proper time.
