Learning and Teaching Proper Manners
There is nothing worse than sitting down to a nice Thanksgiving dinner with family and friends, only to have your children act out with bad manners. Etiquette Is 4 Me is a local company dedicated to teaching the "lost art" of manners to children. She gives a few tips and tricks for teaching children manners in the home before having a disastrous Thanksgiving, and even has a special discount for Good Things Utah viewers: Everyone who mentions "they agree that good manners is one of the best investment for your children" and that they heard it on Good Things Utah, they will receive a FREE evaluation for their children ($70 value) and 10% off the classes that will start in January. Read tips about teaching manners HERE.


Massassoit "Friend To The Pilgrims" at the Utah State Capitol
Known as the "friend to the pilgrims", Massassoit was one of the first people to formally welcome the pilgrims to the new land. Have a "field trip" to the library to learn and read books about him, and then visit his statue at the Utah State Capitol. While you are there, you can take a free tour of the capitol. Many people pass by his statue every day, and don't even notice or know who he is. Thanksgiving is the perfect time to visit him at the capitol and use it as a learning "field trip" for your kids. He is located on the East side of the capitol. Why is this statue at our state capitol, if he never lived in this area? Find out HERE!
