How to Earn the Brownies Manners Try It Patch

by Hannah on February 14, 2011

Let’s face it, good manners are important.  Many of us tend to get annoyed if someone does not give us common courtesy, like holding a door open or saying “thank you” when you do something for another person.

In fact, when I was an elementary school teacher, I would often tell my class that if they were to go out on a business lunch for a job interview, and the job was between two people who had the same qualifications, the person with the best manners would get the job.

Why?

Because when that person would take a potential client out for lunch or dinner, s/he would not embarrass the company by reaching across the table or speaking with her mouth full.

Children need to learn manners.  Here is an article on how your troop can earn the Brownie Girl Scout Manners Try It patch.

Hi! Saw that you were on my blog. Please feel free to link to my blog anything that may be helpful to leaders. I have a Daisy troop and Junior troop. Many of my Juniors have been with me since they were Daisies.
We have a large Junior troop with 17 girls all who are homeschooled. Our Daisy troop also has 8 girls all who are homeschooled.
All the posts are in the index under “Brownies” “juniors” “Daisies” or “scouts”.
Good luck with your Girl Scout adventures!
