Course Description

Etiquette seems like an obsolete term in our modern world, however, more than ever, it is important to learn how to have solid social graces and just plain old good manners. Etiquette simply means learning how to treat others well and how to behave well in the majority of circumstances. Social media venues like texting, Facebook and Twitter have blurred the lines of socially acceptable and unacceptable behavior. It is easy to get out of control and become rash when it comes to trying to say or do the correct thing when texting, Facebooking or emailing. Because these mediums of communication are "faceless" they can lead children and teens to partake in rude, disrespectful behavior. To further complicate matters, a variety of confusing (and confused) media-spectacular role models give impressionable children and teens the wrong idea about how to behave.

Parents can't always be around to help their children make the right decisions. That is why it is vitally important for children and teens to learn how to treat people. They must be able to use their own good judgment based on the solid knowledge of what is respectful of others and dignified of themselves. This course will help parents provide that knowledge to their children.

This course is meant for adults, educators, parents, and caregivers who are responsible for two groups of children--children eight through twelve years old and teens thirteen through seventeen years old. Each lesson is set up with a general section as well as tips and guidelines specific for these two age groups. This course will teach the basics of good etiquette. A strong foundation in proper etiquette will last a lifetime. These are skills that can be used in the present for socializing, at school, at work, and in college; it will also serve them well into their future careers and social lives. Etiquette is not the exclusive domain of the wealthy and powerful of our society. Children and teens of any socioeconomic background can, and should, be taught good etiquette; good etiquette is for anyone who chooses to learn it.

This course is appropriate for those who want to teach etiquette and/or parents who would like to teach their children proper etiquette. It is written in general, uncomplicated terms and vocabulary so that students of all walks of life can easily grasp this knowledge.

"Extraordinarily Helpful"
  • Lesson 1 : Introduction to Modern Etiquette

    The focus of Lesson 1 is to provide a solid foundation in understanding what etiquette is, how it differs from "manners," and the nuances of teaching this concept to children and teens.
  • Lesson 2 : Meetings and Introductions

    It is important to understand how to properly introduce yourself and how to introduce others.
  • Lesson 3 : Conversation and Listening Skills

  • Lesson 4 : Telephone/Cell Phone, Texting, Emailing, and Internet Etiquette

    In our modern world, a lesson on etiquette regarding social media is necessary. It is hard to know what the right thing to do or say is when communicating with others in this way.
  • Lesson 5 : Etiquette in Public Places

    The way you behave when you are out in public with friends and family reflects on you and your parents.
  • Lesson 6 : Employment/Volunteer Etiquette

    At some point in your life, you may perform volunteer work or paid employment. While most of the same rules of etiquette apply in work situations as they do in personal situations, there are some differences.

  • Lesson 8 : Social Gathering Etiquette (Guest and Host/Hostess)

  • Lesson 9 : School Etiquette

    You spend most of your day and week at school, so it is important to know what good school etiquette is.
  • Lesson 10 : Confidence Without Arrogance

    Exuding confidence is attractive. When you are confident, it makes others feel confidence in you, and it helps them trust you.
