Helping you show them the way ~ Cool Conduct book for kids ~ Giveaway

When my children were younger and we ran into a conflict, I would jokingly tell them, "Really ~ that is how (it) has to be.  Says so right in the Mom book!"  I'd hold up a dictionary and share with them that it was the Mom's Book of Rules and shrug, as if to say "sorry, Charlie".  

After the conflict subsided, we would have a two sided conversation about the "why" behind the appropriate choice or behavior.

Of course, this only lasted until they could read.  Then they were on to me and my Mom tricks!


Wouldn't it be wonderful to have a real Mom book? 



Cool Conduct by Nicki Donley
Creator of MOC green gifting cards is also the author of a fantastic book for kids, Cool Conduct ~ 100 Ways To Make A Positive Impression!  

a fun and educational question and answer book identifying manners, etiquette and safety.  Cool Conduct is designed to encourage discussions that develop kind, loving and respectful children.

Nicki brings a plethora of experience to her work, as the mother of triplets, a Junior Achievement Counselor and extensive work with elementary school students.

Reading Cool Conduct will help children understand values, such as courtesy, empathy and respect. 

Cool Conduct covers such topics as:
  • Social Etiquette 
  • Respecting Belongings
  • Safety Skills
  • Outdoor Etiquette
  • Verbal/Non Verbal Communication
  • Electronic Etiquette
  • Table Manners
  • Healthy Habits ~ Image and Clothing
  • Public Places
  • School Etiquette
  • Acts of Kindness
With a thorough range of conduct topics, this is a one-stop guide for all parents!  I highly recommend this work for all parents!  Reading it with my son was a very enriching experience!
