Toddler Virtue Tees Review and Giveaway!  

What happened to manors? What happened to courtesy?
What happened to well behaved children who think of others
first and not just themselves? I have truly became dumb
founded over the years with some of the behaviors I have seen
and wonder what is going on anymore! Let me give you an
example. A few years ago it was a nice summer day and I
heard children yelling out front. I rushed to see what the
Hoopla was and found my son and an older girl from down the
street pretty much in a name calling match and angry with
each other. I demanded to know what was going on and
Andrew knows better then to not spill the whole truth and
told me. He thought she was being rude and he didn't like it
so he said some mean things to her and in turn she said some
back and it blew up from there. Andrew told me what he said
and I was really angry for he made fun of the fact this was her
second time in the 8th grade and though right on the side walk
was not the time or the place to speak to him I right away
demanded he apologize and mean it. He did, looked beaten
and knew more to this would be dealt with once we got home.
I then turned to the girl ( 13 at the time) and said now it is
your turn to apologize, I even left out the mean it part for though
I decided Andrew started it with teasing her if she was rude or
not in the first place he was the one who resorted to an insult
but she had said some very nasty ones as well and way more then
Andrew said, insults in turn. I thought she was just thinking how to
word her apology when she didn't say anything and when I
realized none was coming for she started with more insults
I once again told her to apologize and thought they could shake
hands and end this. I stood with my Chin on the ground when
she looked me square in the eye and told me she was doing
no such thing for she meant everything she said and I need to
stay out of it before she told me what she thought of me!
A 13 year old girl thought it was appropriate to speak to an
adult like that. My son would be buried in the back yard up to
his neck for a month had he spoken to me like that. If he
spoke to a stranger, why he might just disappear all together.

Since Andrew was a baby I have made sure to
instill virtues and morals and we do these things together.
You start with a simple Please and Thank You and go on from
there. I explained name calling and told him all about certain
words and how they can hurt. How to help his neighbor and
treat people how you would like to be treated and my
Grandmothers favorite, "If you do not have something nice
to say, do not say anything at all!" We may not be rich or
have extra money anymore but there is more to Charity then
just giving money and I have taught him that as well. He is
always helping other people in the neighborhood and is
the first to volunteer to help when it is needed. He is Thankful
for what he has and knows better then to ask for more and
has always been brave and understanding. These are not things
your children learn at school. They learn them at home and
you need to lead by example. Now come on, kids have
their moments but they need to learn how to rectify their own
mistakes and that was why I wanted him to apologize, to
fix his own cruelty at making a comment he should not have
said in the first place. I will not make an excuse for him and
he knows it and my son has only gotten in serious trouble
twice in his life. Once he told someone he hated them
and we had a very long talk about how strong the word hate is
and how he is way to young to even come close to having
a feeling that strong, even if he was talking about Liver.
The other time was he called a boy stupid and again, the
talk. He was informed no person is stupid and just because
he knows more about one subject does not mean another person
does not know more about another. He needed to understand
everyone learns at a different pace and respect a persons
difference and learn that differences are what make the
world an exciting place to live in. Every day parents need to
work on these things and yes, set backs happen, but never
give up for our children are our future and I get nervous when
I see how some of our future stars act.

I got a chance to do a review for I site I found delightful.
It is a super way to teach your kids virtues and manors and
how to lead a good life and follow a good road. Children live
what they learn and learn what they see and Virtue Tees
has everything good you would want your child to know on
some really superb quality tees. The have shirts for Patience,
Gratitude, Courage, Tolerance and Kindness. Who wouldn't
want those actions to be a part of their child's life? Each shirt
is printed on 100% cotton, low gauge and loose knit. Comfy
and great material! They are unique in that they are taped
shoulder to shoulder with an exposed grey chain stitching on
each collar but the message is the best part! I think they would
be great for a Birthday Party Favor where all the kids can see
what each other is wearing and even make a game out of it
if they can show an example but the heart of the manor is
these shirts display what we all hope our kids grow up
demonstrating in their daily manorisms and become an
important part of their personality traits! Rowan looked cute
as a button in her Tee and I plan to have her wear it often
and as soon as she understands we will talk about what
it means. Teach your children young! They will always
remember. Virtues should be a part of every child's life
if you are religious or not these represent simple human
kindness and values and not a person in the world no matter
Religious background, race or creed could fault that! I
plan on collecting them all for not only are they a great
comfortable shirt for everyday wear, it can't hurt to have
a little extra help in keeping my child sweet! Look for them
on my Valentines Day gift guide as well, for they are a great
gift for any child and what is better to celebrate a day of
love then virtues that come straight from the heart?
