Table Manners Matter


Our 8 year old daughter has poor table manners. What is your suggestion on improving them? We have tried nagging (obviously unsuccessful), working on one thing at a time (worked for the first issue but no other issues), and the last thing we tried (3 strikes and you leave the dinner table, to return and finish after the rest of us are done) has left her dreading and not wanting to eat dinner anymore. Aside from the table manners, she is a great eater and good kid, so I do not want to create an eating problem where there isn't one. Do we just drop it all together? Thanks!
