Etiquette: Tips for Modern Families-Aug 11

  • Date: August 11, 2018
  • Time: 12:00 pm to 1:30 pm
  • Price: $70.00
  • Location: Gorton Community Center
    400 E. Illinois Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045


  • Class Fee: $70
  • Saturday, August 11 from 12-1:30 PM
  • Join us for a dining etiquette class where families attend together and learn dining etiquette and table manners during a four-course lunch.

The Etiquette School of Chicago’s, “Family Dinner Etiquette Tips for Modern Families” are easy to learn and then practice regularly, until they become second nature. Meals are more enjoyable when everyone is on the same page.

Remember, you’re not teaching your children manners to make you look good as parents, but to instill a foundation of kindness and attentiveness that will help them put others at ease and better navigate life, both personally and one day, professionally. As in all parenting ways, it helps to lead by example.

*Cost is per person and includes lunch
