The Golden Words

The Golden Words

Please, sorry and thank you are known as the Golden Words. Using these three words means you have good manners. Remember, everyone likes children who have good manners.

How often do you use them?

You say "please" when you want to make a request like:
"Please may I come in, Madam?" or "Please could you lend me your pen?" or "Please may I go to the toilet?."

You say "sorry" if you have said or done something wrong like:
"I am so sorry I hit you," or "Sorry but I cannot remember the answer." We also use "sorry" when we feel bad for someone like:  "I feel sorry for you."

You say "thank you" when you have got something from someone like:

"Thank you for the gift." Or "Thanks for your help," or "No thank you, I do not want any more sweets."

Let these three "Golden Words" be your friends all your life. You will never be "sorry" if you say "please" and "thank you".
