The essential guide to teaching children of all ages manners, respect and the social skills to get ahead in life.
This first hand guide filled with humour and anecdotes will explain how to teach your children to behave at home, in restaurants, airports, trains and public places.
Even if you think your children's behaviour in public leaves you in need of psychological help, this book explains how to turn bad behaviour into good in a matter of weeks. Imagine actually receiving compliments on your children's behaviour and manners. Yes, it is possible and no, it's not difficult. You will be happier and less stressed and your children will be happier, more respectful, more popular with their friends and teachers (oh yes that helps) and dare I say, exactly what you thought having a family should be like.
The good news is it's never too early to start or too late to learn.

“Mum and author, Penny Palmano writes a book called, 'Yes, please. Thanks!' And all hell breaks loose. Do I welcome a book on good manners for children? Absolutely."
Vanessa Feltz in the Daily Express.
"Author Penny Palmano has come up with an idea that is as brilliant in its old-fashioned simplicity as 'Eats, Shoots and Leaves'. Her book, 'Yes, please. Thanks!' aims to teach our children good manners.”
Terence Blackler, The Independent.
“A new book is about to do for manners what ‘Eats, Shoots and Leaves’ did for punctuation. ‘Yes, please. Thanks!’ aims to teach our children good manners.”
The Daily Mail, Keith Waterhouse column.
“Parents, buy this book. From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank Penny Palmano for her new book ‘Yes, please. Thanks!’”
Ian O’Doherty, The Irish Independent.
“Perhaps it’s an unchangeable fact that every generation of adults will decry the manners of its children. What is certain that no generation has had as much reason to as this one. A new book ‘Yes, please. Thanks!’ by Penny Palmano aims to change all that.”
The Times, required Reading.
After her fair share of parenting as a mum and a step-mum, Penny Palmano decided to tackle what she saw as an epidemic of bad manners. Armed with a pen, she got her firm views down on paper, and soon she had written a guide book teaching good manners called "Yes, please. Thanks!". Penny doesn't claim to be an expert but believes her first-hand experience more than qualifies her for the job.
