"Say "Please" Jack."

As Jack's vocabulary grows in leaps and bounds I'm struggling to lay the foundation of good manners before the die is cast and he winds up like one of those thugish brutes that wander the Mall of America swearing loudly into his cell phone. (Is it just me?)

Right now when Jack has figured out that the word "Carry" can get someone to pick him up. This means he'll now come running over, grab your leg, and begin saying "Carry" over and over until the end result occurs.

I've been trying over the last week to get him to associate "please" with one of his wants. Thus my near constant refrain of "Say "Please" Jack" until he's as tired of hearing it as I am of saying it.

Oh how I hope this works.
