GC always remove shoes at front door, as do adults. Table manners are good and no toys are allowed at the table, from first learning to talk they have asked if they may leave the table.
When GC are expected the porch door is unlocked ready for their arrival but they always ring the bell and wait for us to open the door.
Toys are there for playing with and they don't need to ask but they do tidy them up before they go home.
We always get hand written thank you cards after birthdays and Christmas, I don't expect because they thank us in person anyway, but DIL says that GC need to do this for relatives that live at a distance so everyone gets written thanks.
Parents lead by example and it is not hard to spot the families that make an effort.
