Mind your manners

Original post made on Aug 9, 2010

In her career of working with professional models in London, Wynne Dalley has long had a message for young girls. "It's not only good looks, beauty or charm," she says, "but it's a question of everything being put together." While it includes taking care of your hair, skin and nails – not everyone can afford to go to beauty parlors, she adds -- it is also a matter of treating people well.

Good luck! Try starting with their mothers and fathers, who drive around on their cell phones. Then you can move on to the kids.

When Danville moms stop obsessing about their own looks and their status toys, then maybe their daughters will grow up with decent values. With affluence, Danville should have become a really great place to live instead of the shallow, plastic place it is.

This book should do well here in Danville. I can tell by ""If girls learn early to make very best of their appearance, take care of their skin and hair, and to treat people well". Maybe Danville would not have problems with many Moms and daughters if it said ""If girls learn early to treat people well, the rest will work out" (like taking care of their appearance). Most girls want to look good; it goes without saying, especially here in Danville.

As far as grandparents, they are older and wiser! Don't be afraid to say that the new generation of mothers care more about looking good, taking care of themselves, and being their child's friend. It's the truth for many Moms here in Danville!
