    EMILY POST Tunku Varadarajan in the WSJ points out how manners have decayed in recent years. I agree 100%. It has been nearly impossible for me to teach my kids to say “Yes, ma’am” and “No, sir.” Perhaps I’m a relic of the South, but youngsters saying “Yeah” to an adult, or even worse, using the adult’s first name, just drives me crazy. I don’t even like the trend in church Sunday School, where the kids are told to call their teachers “Mr. Dennis” or “Miss Cathy.”
