ABOUT

There was once a time that etiquette was taught in the family. Families use to gather around the table to entertain guests, and children would have to be excused to leave the table. Decorum was taught by families and, by example, hospitality, responsibilities of a host, and courtesy to a guest. Skin care was taught to daughters who observed their mothers and sisters. Sons looked up to their fathers who by example taught them theories and reasoning.

 

But in today’s busy world, this is hardly the case. Lifestyles have changed the face of family leisure life, and daily family occasions have basically vanished. Families around the world have been separated by divorce and now grandparents or other relatives can’t be a part of a child’s upbringing because of the distance between them. Everyday, families become more casual, and less formal.

 

Although some parents teach manners at home, it’s challenging to “do it all” because of how busy they are. Fathers are traveling more often and working longer hours. Mothers are not only raising the children, they are also getting involved in community affairs and often find themselves seeking employment outside the home to develop their own careers.

 

Other than for a special occasion, it’s typically rare when families actually sit down at the table for a meal with everyone present. Have we become a fast-food generation? Could this be why some young adults feel embarrassed to discover a gap in their knowledge of social skills and dining etiquette?

 

Most parents earnestly want their children to be acquainted with points of etiquette because they know that manners are guidelines for a successful life. This is why the NM School Of Etiquette LLC was created. Children now have the opportunity to learn how to tackle new situations with poise and confidence.

 

NM School Of Etiquette LLC takes pride in nurturing young minds, and what better way to do so than by teaching confidence, respect, and kindness on top of dining etiquette! That's what can be expected when they participate in our Youth Culture Program.
