The Rules for Proper Table Manners
Taught in a fun-filled and engaging fashion that will make learning a blast!
Over 20,000 meals will be eaten by our children by the time they are eighteen which makes the table a great place to teach dining lessons, including how to participate in a conversation.
I teach the behavior of "give and take" in conversations, recognizing that children deserve to be able to speak at dinner, but at the same time the importance of listening and not interrupting.
Unlike adults, most children are not able to remain seated for an extended period of time at a table. Therefore, it's important to teach them the importance of asking to be excused, May I please be excused? when they are finished eating or beginning to feel restless.
Table manners for children will also address the way they should eat and behave at school, where lunch has to be eaten quickly and where there are few grown-ups to supervise their manners.
Manners Talk training session(s) provide children with useful and vital information for any dining setting --- at home or school, dining out, holiday dinners, or birthday parties & sleepovers.
Role playing is incorporated with lots of activities and games to kept their interest and attention.
