We want our children to have good manners, not only to say, "please" and "thank you," but to learn social graces as well, such as the ability to say, "hello," when greeted by another person-relatives, teachers, our next-door neighbors. But we also tell our kids not to talk to strangers. So where does that leave us with the supermarket cashier, the bank teller and the mailman?
