Etiquette for Teens and Children

The Well Behaved Teenager

GirlOnPhoneWHO YOU ARE SHOWS in how you behave and in how you appear to others. How you look, talk, walk, sit, stand, and even how you feel—in a word, the sum of how you present yourself—will always speak volumes about who you are and what you think.

Do most young people understand what it means to have “good manners” and why such social niceties are important? And do you believe that teaching them the basics of etiquette would give them an advantage growing up and into adulthood? Think of it—the opportunity to send children off on the lifelong pursuit of their personal best!


This is what behavior that grows out of respect for self and for others can do for them. Children who understand the necessity of valuing others learn, through that process, to value themselves. Few things are more important to helping our young people increase their own confidence and sense of self-worth. Although time-tested, etiquette is not just “grandma’s rules”! There are updated rules and guidelines to match contemporary lifestyles.

Our Etiquette Survival for Teens™ manual is designed for parents, teachers, home schoolers, or group leaders, to give young people in grades 6 through 12 the knowledge they need of how to live graciously in today’s world. Many young people are completely unaware that our society has basic rules for socially acceptable behavior. This is an excellent time in their lives to learn social skills they will use to make themselves and others comfortable for the rest of their lives.

The Etiquette Survival for Teens™ manual focuses on self-confidence building, appropriate communication, dining etiquette, social etioquette, telephone manners, personal presense, clothing, grooming, interviewing skills, and other life skills needed for the types of situations most teens are likely to encounter.

Well-behaved and polite teenagers? Yes, it’s possible!  

 

Children and Manners

Milk and CookiesEducators with 20 years or more teaching experience are saying that many of the children today are much less respectful and much less mannerly than the children of a couple generations ago. Because of this epidemic of rudenss and lack of respect, teachers believe that children are not learning as well as they could be.

Unless children today learn respect from others, beginning with adults, parents, and older siblings, they can never learn to respect themselves. Manners and respect are inseparable.


The etiquette skills your children or students learn will not only benefit them now, but throughout their lives. Very simply, what you show them by setting a good example and give them by teaching these skills will make them happier, better adjusted children and human beings. And that makes you and what you share invaluable!

Our Etiquette Survival For Children™ manual is designed to give children in kindergarten through grade six the knowledge they need of how to live graciously in today’s world. It’s a wonderful time in their lives to be made aware that our society has basic rules for socially acceptable behavior. They’ll learn social skills they’ll use to make themselves and others comfortable for the rest of their lives. They will learn which manners are most important and
which behaviors most impress others.
