Yes somsuj, charitable feelings, good behaviour, respect, common courtesy, etc, all begin with and within a good home life.
People generally say that my children are polite, helpful and well-behaved. They're not perfect, but people have said that they are a credit to me. Being a parent is not easy and there are things I might have done differently with hindsight, but I've tried my best.
Unfortunately some children may be brought up badly because their parents were brought up badly and they don't know any different - which is very sad.
I do miss the 'old-fashioned'politeness. Some of it might have been a bit over the top, but today we see lack of respect in too many areas of life.
(I know we've discussed respect a lot already.
What do you understand as 'political correctness' exactly?
