Etiquette School


A few decades ago, etiquette was something that you had to learn if you want to be a well-adjusted individual in society. Proper etiquette permeated every aspect of a person’s social life. You needed proper etiquette if you wanted to attend a social gathering, talk to professors at the university, etc. In short, proper etiquette was the central group of social skills that allowed a person to navigate the world.


The same emphasis on proper manners is slowly eroding in our modern times. Sad to say, some parents allow their children to “have it their way, all the time”. This new liberty is double-edged. It allowed creativity and self-expression to flourish to some degree. On the other hand, it also allowed children to be rude – to their detriment and nobody else’s. When a person lacks proper etiquette, he has a hard time mingling with other people, simply because he can easily offend others by the way he speaks and the by the way he acts.


Enrolling a child in an etiquette school is an ideal investment in your child’s character. We want our children to grow up as well-adjusted and successful individuals. They cannot become very successful professionals if they do not have proper etiquette. These core set of social skills are actually society’s “survival instincts”. These skills reduce friction between individuals and groups, and allow people to interact with the least amount of resistance in whatever social setting a person finds himself in.


What does an etiquette school have to offer? Here are just some of the skills being taught to children in good etiquette schools:


  1. How to make friends in different places and unfamiliar situations
  2. How to introduce people to each other
  3. How to effectively converse with ease
  4. How to speak with complete confidence
  5. How to use the telephone courteously
  6. How to be safe in public and how to deal with strangers, if they should approach a child in public
  7. How to behave inside a church, during mass or other religious rites/services.
  8. How to be a good companion or friend to another person
  9. How to be a good host
  10. How to become a good guest when you are invited to another house or place
  11. How greet people in social events and how to initiate handshakes
  12. Proper manners during social events like parties
  13. How to be respectful inside the home
