TABLE MANNERS for all occasions --- At home, school,  restaurants, family holidays and parties.
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.

We were at a brunch in with a few couples and one of the moms was raving about this new place where for the "bargain basement" price of $25 they will teach your preschooler etiquette for an hour by serving them tea on real china. While smiling politely, I secretly rejoiced in the fact that "Ms. Vicki," an Etiquette Coach with Manners Talk has been teaching my kids manners for several years now, every week in their aftercare school program, at no extra cost to me. Then the kicker came when the same little girl who had apparently been schooled in etiquette the previous day yelled, "Mommy, bacon!!!" My son turned to me and muttered under his breath: "Looks like someone needs the "Big Book of Manners." I about died laughing. So THANK YOU to the aftercare enrichment program with Bridge and Ms. Vicki with Manners Talk for everything you do!
