1. You’re coughing into your right hand.
Covering your mouth when you sneeze or cough is good manners. Using your right hand to do it? That’s bad. “Your right hand is your social hand,” Weaver says. “It should be available for shaking hands, waving, and blowing kisses.” Your left hand, meanwhile, is what she dubs your “personal” hand: “That’s the hand you use for coughing, scratching, sneezing, whatever it is we don’t want to talk about.” The reason for the distinction, she explains, is simple politeness—you don’t want to sneeze into one hand, then absentmindedly use that palm to shake hands with a new colleague.
2. You’re wearing your handbag on your right shoulder—and slinging it over the back of your chair.
To keep your “social” hand free for greetings, it’s best to keep your handbag — or cocktail! — in your left hand. That way, says Weaver, “you don’t have to take the time to switch it over to the other arm when you’re reaching out to shake someone’s hand.” (Of note: Queen Elizabeth always keeps her tote on her left.) While you’re at it, never place your handbag on the back of a chair when you’re seated at a table. The proper spot, says Weaver, is on the floor to your right.
3. Also, you’re calling it a “purse.”
That term is reserved for any clutch, tote, satchel, etc. that costs less than $100. “A purse is something that is relatively inexpensive,” notes Weaver. “A handbag is more expensive. You should never go into Neiman Marcus and ask for their purse department. They don’t have one.”
One: Meeting their everyday needs
Babies and children need to know there is someone who loves them and that their needs will be met as soon as possible. This means:
feeding them when they're hungry
keeping them warm, dry and safe from danger
helping them if they are in pain, scared or upset
providing family routines
making sure there is always someone you trust to look after them.
A few minutes is a long time for a baby who is feeling hungry or upset. The sooner they are comforted the safer they will feel.
Older children might be able to wait a little longer, but they still need to know that you will feed them when they are hungry, and help them when they are sad or in pain.
When I cry:I'm a baby. I'll cry an average of two to five hours every day, it's my way of talking. Go through this checklist when I cry and it will help you work out what's wrong (and if I won't stop, just love me anyway!).
