Where did these phrases go? I know they are still around. I hear them from other kids, and even from time to time from the step children, the thing is they are phrase that I personally never hear! Why is that?? Why can they be said to other people but not to me. And if I'm lucky all I get back from me saying thank you to them is a "Ya." This is unexceptable to me. But I can't seem to get them to understand this.
I m trying to be passive with everything, attitudes and manners, but I am getting weak. That soon I will not let these manners go. The more I make them be respectful, the less they are. The more I am passive the less the care.
What to do with the missing manners????
