Children’s Social Skills Workshop - Summer Sessions Register View Cart

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.

Topics Include:
The Importance of Greeting Others
Rules of Introduction
The Handshake
Eye Contact and the Power of a Smile
Sportsmanship Etiquette
Hygiene and Appearance
Self-Respect and Respect for others
Behaving Appropriately at Other People’s Homes
Making Appropriate Conversa
