A sign of a good upbringing isn’t that you don’t spill on the table cloth, but that when somebody else does, you don’t point it out to them-Chekhov

It’s a simple truth that speaks volumes about one’s character. Good manners are not just about knowing which fork to use or how to greet someone politely; they are a reflection of the values instilled in us from a young age

Leading by Example
Parents play a crucial role in shaping a child's upbringing. When parents themselves refrain from embarrassing or shaming others in such situations, their children learn that compassion is more important than pointing out faults.
Respecting Differences
It isn't just about not laughing at accidents; it's about understanding that people are unique, and everyone has their own strengths and weaknesses.
