Pearls & Bow Ties: Etiquette Class for 9 – 18 YO

  • Location: Gorton Center
    400 E. Illinois Road, Lake Forest, IL 60045

Manners matter. These little life lessons like saying please and thank you, and not talking with your mouth full bring huge benefits for kids such as social success, cooperation, confidence and opportunity. By demonstrating good manners, you show respect for yourself and others. This class will teach kids etiquette techniques and strategies for family life and social interactions. Some of the topics are…

  • Good posture
  • Set the table for a three-course meal and using appropriate table ware correctly
  • Appropriate behavior and attire at informal/formal gatherings
  • Listening with good eye contact and not interrupting
  • Making conversation and responding to adults
  • Appropriate use of technology (especially cell phones)

Join Sarah Berto, with Confidence with Etiquette, as she talks about etiquette and the positive benefits of having good manners.
