Etiquette lessons help children learn the difference between right and wrong by helping them to focus on their actions and how to interact with others.
The goal of teenage etiquette education is to raise emotionally balanced, socially compassionate and caring individuals with a solid value system. We give the building blocks for successful emotional growth: integrity, honesty, empathy, leadership and responsibility to name just a few.
Besides self-confidence and the ability to relate to others, students of modern etiquette develop enhanced social skills and experience far less anxiety when handling peer pressure. The potential for school and street violence is reduced by young people practicing the responsible behaviour taught in etiquette education.
Recent studies have shown that emotional intelligence is as central to a child’s success and fulfillment as good grades and a university degree.
A knowledge of etiquette has immediate results as well as benefits lasting a lifetime.
The etiquette course is for 10 – 17 year olds.
