In these days of convenience foods, take out, busy working parents, extra-curricular activities, homework and so on, it may be difficult to take the time to sit down at a table together as a family and to teach your children good table manners.

Description: Many see table manners as old fashioned but, I am sure that many of us are grateful for the table manners we learnt as children when we are faced with dining situations where being comfortable that you know how to have good table manners is important. Teaching your children good table manners will benefit them in many situations throughout their lives. Knowing what to do with your napkin, utensils or sitting politely at the table, will come as second nature if you have been taught and have practiced good table manners from childhood. “The Dining Skills Programs” will teach children to feel comfortable and self-assured in every situation.
