Start Teaching Children’s Etiquette
Basic Children’s Etiquette and Life Skills Training
We all want our children to be well-mannered, but also know it can be hard to convince them to practice the virtues of being polite and respectful.
Good Manners are essential for every child’s self- confidence and success in life.
As parents, life can be crazy enough, with juggling kids, schedules, dinner, the laundry, and a part or full time job.
With poor role models influencing our children everyday on television, the internet, and right beside them in the classroom, you could use some help and guidance to keep your kids on the right path to good behavior.
A Guide to teaching Basic Children’s Etiquette and other life skills is a blessing for many parents. My Princess Tea Party business has also featured etiquette classes for many years with great success as measured by the amount of repeat and referral business I receive.
Whether you are a parent trying to instill positive behavior in your child, or someone interested in teaching these skills as a side business, my “Teaching Basic Children’s Etiquette and Social Skills” is the Guide that gets results.
Normally, this type of training is geared to younger children, ages 6+, focusing on the basic building blocks of appropriate behavior in social situations. It introduces the younger child to the idea that there is a cause and effect relationship influencing their interaction with others.
At Lisa Rose for example, we use a “Manners are Cool” approach. Right off the bat we are developing a rapport with the children in a way they can embrace, making it fun for the kids as they learn by doing.
Once you establish that it’s cool to do this, which isn’t hard really, they are eager to learn and the value and benefit of what we are trying to teach them is easier to get across. In my case it is “Look, Listen, and Lead.”
As children prepare to attend pre-K or elementary school, it’s a good time to work with them on how to interact with others. A good beginners Etiquette training should teach the basics of:
- Why manners are important
- How to address the teacher and/or administrator
- Positive First impressions
- Introductions and greetings
- Interaction with adults
- Eye contact
- Body language
- Table Manners
- Social interaction with peers
- Kindness and respect toward others
As children practice what they are taught in the sessions, they begin to develop habits of being considerate, understanding, and respectful of others. They learn to share and respect the space of others including family members as well as when they are guests outside the home.
As adults, you know how difficult it is to prosper in today’s world. You can only imagine what it will be like when today’s young children are up to bat. If a parent can provide for Etiquette and Life Skills training, there is no child who cannot benefit from it.
It is a positive step in the right direction for parents to put into practice the foundation of social etiquette to help them through life.
