“Can I come to this class again?” This a common question asked by kids who attend a table manners class!   Having fun is what learning manners is all about.  While still young, children are very receptive to learning manners from anyone but their parents.  Adelie School of Protocol, LLC in Durham, New Hampshire has a proven track record having instructed over 500 students.  100_5040Small groups are very effective with hands-on instruction while dining over a multi-course meal. Shirt and tie, nice dress and big appetite is all that’s needed to attend a table manners class.  Looking for an opportunity for your son/daughter to feel extra special and gain confidence?  Just let them have a few hours alone with their peers in a fancy restaurant and when you pick them up, be ready for them to chew your ear off! Table conversation and questions abound from “What if I don’t like salad?” to “Do I have to hold my fork in my right hand, if I’m left handed?” You think it, they ask it.    Once they attend a table etiquette class, they’ll be ready to “show-off” their newly acquired manners.
