Children’s Social Skills Workshop Online
In today’s fast-paced, high tech society, teaching children manners is more crucial than ever. One of the most important jobs we have as parents and teachers is to help children develop social skills, show them how to interact with others in a polite manner, and teach them to treat everyone with respect. Whether the occasion is a family gathering, a meal at a restaurant, or a quick trip to the grocery store, children can apply our lessons in any social situations and practice good manners so that they become a habitual part of their lives and set them apart.

Online Class Guidelines

- Please make sure your child’s screen is set up so students are able to stand in front of the screen from the waist up as we will discuss posture and body language.
- Please set your child up somewhere in the house where there will be no distractions, it is extremely beneficial to minimize background noises. Noises can be very distracting for all students attending the program.
