On Monday we’re going to talk about manners! Courtney Cappallo in Massachusetts is dismayed at how rude and impatient people are, and she has some creative ideas for teaching her own kids how to be polite.

On Tuesday, we are heading to Oregon for a guest post from Sara Padilla. She is trying to raise children who are grateful for what they have, and she ponders the challenges of doing this in today’s society.

On Wednesday, we’re going to Brazil, where Eco Ziva talks about something that is so difficult to practice: environmentally friendly parenting. She tells us what she struggles with the most, and how she feels it can be rectified.

On Thursday we fly all the way to Japan, where Hamakko Mommy tells us about what it’s like there at this time of year. The rainy season has its downsides, but it also brings out a magical side in children.

On Thursday evening we have a new writer interview, from Travel Lady With Baby in Canada!

On Friday, we will head to Singapore to hear from Madeline at Mad Psych Mum. How many times do we provide the best of everything for our kids to the complete exclusion of our own needs? Madeline reminds us of the importance of taking care of ourselves.

On Saturday, check out the Saturday Sidebar with Eva Fannon, where the World Moms give their thoughts on an important topic, and chime in with your answers to this week’s question!
