Children learn by example, doing, and repetition. You consistently remind your child to say thank you, your welcome; whatever the occasion calls for. And you in turn consistently say the same back to the child when they do something for you. Learn by example I would say is the best way to teach your children.
Parent's behaviour is the best example and children always follow it. So if you naturally have good manners and use it within your family, your child will pick it up automatically.
However it won't hart to remind your child if he/she forgets from time to time about good manners
The best way to teach them is to show them by example .. parents are the first teachers ..
By being a good role model. I didn't insist that they say thank you or please when they were younger but instead I always said it myself. Soon enough they were copying me and learnt that way.
I agree with the other answers, definitely lead by example. That and, practice, practice, practice!
From my experience, teaching my child good manners is by example. Regardless of what I say to them, they will still act the way I do in the end.
