These young ladies learned that manners can be fun during a recent class at the Edison & Ford Winter Estate. While they learned new skills and practiced dining etiquette, they met new friends and discovered that learning manners can be a lot of fun.
Throughout the class the children practice holding the silverware properly, chewing with their mouths closed, how to set a table and remember where to place their drink (and if used, bread plate.) One of their favorite time during the class is when they can learn more about each other as we discuss topics that are appropriate to share at the dinner table. Favorite topics include hobbies, favorite movies and their pets. But they learn to never discuss gross things their pets might have done, or disgusting parts of a movie that would make others feel uncomfortable. e
At the end of the class, these young ladies wrote thank you notes to their moms, and grandparents, to thank them for signing them up for Mimi’s Manners. As you can tell by their smiles, they had a great time!
