Social etiquette is how you handle yourself when functioning in daily life.  Skills such as:

  • Eye contact
  • Making others feel comfortable
  • Being kind and polite
  • Introducing others
  • Respecting others choices
  • Dining etiquette 
  • Table manners

Choosing to use these social skills helps us to stay peaceful and act in a respectful manner toward ourselves and others.

When to Use Social Etiquette Skills?

Today, we use all types of modern social etiquette.  For example:

1. Social Media

  • Virtual meetings
  • Texting
  • Commenting on others’ posts
  • TikTok 
  • Videos

And when we use the above, there are many teachable moments.  Children need our help with all of the above.

They are all using social media and starting at such a young age.  We can teach them how to use it respectfully for themselves and how to treat others on social media platforms.

Children use virtual offerings too. Online learning has made an impact on our youth.  Respectful behavior is still needed virtually.

2. Human Connections

Now more than ever, children need to learn to connect with each other – in person.

This is a very important life skill.  As they grow into adulthood and start their professional careers, they need to build relationships.

Social Etiquette Skills such as:

  • Eye contact
  • Greetings 
  • Introducing others
  • Conversation skills
  • Positive body language 

These skills help us make a human connection.  It helps us to connect and be human.  Using these skills helps us with connecting with friends and family. 

We can help others connect socially too when using our good manners.

How to Teach Children Social Etiquette?

Remember, children are always watching us.  They are watching us during the school day, at the airport, in the drive-thru….etc.  

Are you making eye contact, treating others respectfully, greeting the person in the grocery store checkout line, saying “excuse me and thank you”?

Children learn by watching.
