MANNERS TALK ™ is committed and passionate about developing excellent social skills in children, ages 6-12, and teenagers, ages 13-18, building a solid foundation for learning and using proper etiquette, good manners and kind and considerate behavior toward others. When children learn the importance of treating others with kindness, consideration and respect, they will be less likely to engage in bullying, and will model the behavior that will make them leaders in their schools.
CORE VALUES: Etiquette training is provided in the spirit of kindness, patience, humor, creativity and discovery. The focus being to cultivate manners that reflect respect and civility towards others and to help build a core foundation for success later in life.
GOALS: Develop proper etiquette skills that will help to increase their confidence, strengthen their integrity, and allow them to feel at ease in new and unfamiliar situation. Also, we encourage treating oneself and others with kindness, dignity, and respect.
TEACHING STYLE: Implemented with theme-based topics that are age-appropriate. Conversational with interactive role playing and team building exercises for active engagement. Cooperative dialogue with an emphasis on "Questions and Answers."
The primary focus is on the importance of our youth expanding beyond their "world" and considering the thoughts, feelings, and needs of others as demonstrated by their words and actions, less "me-ism."
