Utilize teaching opportunities.

If you find yourself saddled with a youngster who doesn't follow rules, lacks manners or drives you nuts, use it as a way to teach your child what is and isn't acceptable when he's at other people's houses. After all, you want to make sure that your kid isn't the annoying one for other parents, so explaining how to follow the rules of the house, proper language and acceptable behavior reminds your kid to clean up his act when playing with his own friends.
