As parents, I am sure you would love your teenagers to be able to put their best foot forward when they venture out into the world and not be perceived or judged in a negative light.
And as a teacher, wouldn't it give you great pride and pleasure to see your students show more consideration and respect towards their peers and elders. We all know that teens with good manners are much easier to teach and to have in the classroom.
Manners Talk ™ Etiquette Coaching for Children and Teenagers based in Washington, DC NW.
Vicki Fleming, is an Etiquette "Mobile" Coach who travels to facilities, schools and homes to teach both group and private tutorial classes that are both fun and engaging.
The sessions involve role-playing activities that recreate real life situations to help teens learn to overcome their discomfort in new and unfamiliar situations.
High pressure situations like college and job interviews are played out to help teens lessen their fear and practice the necessary skills they will need. The need for good communication and introductory skills are also taught.
The students will learn the value of respecting and caring about others. With the greatest mission being to help them gain resilience, self-respect and confidence, along with the importance of valuing others. These skills will take them far in life.
I believe strongly in the need to help our youth develop integrity, behavior that reflects respect and concern for others, and the importance of their own actions and speech.
