Parents and educators need your help to teach manners at home and in schools. They need etiquette experts to guide them and their children/students.

Children need help with all levels of social skills – from the basics (eye contact, posture, etc.) to conversation skills.

Generation Z is now landing in the workplace and so many emails are coming in asking to help them integrate into a professional environment. Using good judgment and critical thinking skills seems to be the top of the list when we are contacted by human resource department.

It is never too early to start teaching manners. Ideally, children and young adults should know the basic skills mentioned above.

From the time they were born, Generation Z has had a device to rely on for most everything. This is the first generation to have devices since the time of birth to now as a young adult. We are seeing the results of what it is like for our lives to orbit around our phones, computers, etc.

What is in store for this generation? They are also the ones who were attending their last years of college during the pandemic. Many took classes virtually and had very little social interrelations. Could this be part of the reason why they feel a bit uncomfortable starting a new job and going into an office everyday facing the need to be social?

I do know this- we can help them. 

You Can Help Parents Raise Kind and Confident Children

Parents need us to help them teach their children about kindness, respect, good manners and confidence.

Over the years as I have worked with parents and teachers, I often hear the comment “they will listen to you more than me”- meaning, when teaching manners, children listen to a third party. For some reason this is the way of the world.

How and Where Can You Teach Manners to Children Right Now

You might be asking yourself by now, “how can I help”.

  1. Parents are looking for creative ways to supplement their children’s education.  In fact, this has been the case for years.

You can teach manners to children in their home.  This is part of our licensing and certification training.  We have all the lesson plans and handout as well as the marketing materials for you to get started with private instructions with families.

A private manners instruction was one of my favorite ways to teach children.

When we train you, you learn how to instruct this way as well as the fees to charge.  You also discover how to customize this type of instruction.

2. There has been a focus at the school level in many states to focus on the whole child.  Character building programs are sought out by many school districts.

This is where you come into play.  Why not offer a series of manners events for schools?

Teachers need your help.  School counselors are looking for ideas to assist  with programs that promote the well being of children.

In our etiquette training and certification program, we show you how to connect with schools.  Everything is done-for-you.
