Ages 11-13: Being a Good Guest


Give your tween guidelines for good behavior as a guest. Ask him to observe the host parents' rules even if they're different from your house rules:

  • Don't overstay his welcome. Talk with the host parent about when he should come home.
  • Use his best table manners.
  • Speak and listen respectfully, making eye contact and not rolling his eyes. Don't tolerate swearing or other rude behavior.
  • Clean up after himself and thank the host family before leaving.
