According to Emily Post, etiquette means “treating people with consideration, respect and honesty and being aware of how your actions affect those around us”. Our facilitator, Dr. Kate Roberts, also believes that etiquette involves trying to make the people that you’re with feel comfortable.
Today’s parents are overwhelmed in their daily tasks, often multi-tasking and therefore less aware of their own shorthanded approach as they attempt to get each task accomplished in the shortest amount of time. Not taking time for connection during transitions can come across as insensitive and impolite, even if the intent maybe different on the part of the parent.
If we as adults are challenged to be polite, imagine how difficult it is for our children to learn good manners and yet it’s as important given the limited time we have to connect.
This teleclass focuses on:
- How parents can recognize their own contribution to poor etiquette
- How they can teach good manners to their children and
- What the very positive benefits are of practicing the discipline and art of etiquette in today’s shorthand world.
