Children's Manners and Morals offers selected excerpts and illustrations from early American etiquette manuals describing acceptable behavior and manners of social engagement of the times. In those days, all children were considered to be young adults and expected to obey the same rules of etiquette as adults. Etiquette was taught as the primary lesson to transform boys into young gentlemen and girls into ladies.
