The book is divided into categories of lessons that include: Everyday Etiquette; Good Impressions; Eating Right; Playing Nice; and Netiquette —rules for navigating the complex and ever-changing world of technology, social media, and online manners. (See this month’s Ask Mrs. McVeigh column for some greater advice on this important subject.)
Besides parents themselves, teachers and counselors are also a target audience for the book.
The chapters includes lessons, games, and activities for beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels with a section at the end of each chapter to help answer some of the most common questions your young ones might ask.
“It not just about formal etiquette, it’s more about important and practical life lessons. You can use it at different ages throughout your child’s life,” Elise said. It is a fun and easy resource that you can pull out anytime you want to work on your children’s manners.”
Here’s what Callisto Media says about the newly published book: “You’ll first understand the best ways to teach manners, and why they make happy children into successful adults. Then, dive into chapters that address all the situations where manners matter most—from the ‘magic words’ to everyday scenarios like getting on an elevator or going out to eat. Look forward to watching your child flourish with excellent communication skills—and get prepared for even more compliments and invitations.”
