After many years working in education and raising my own four children I decided to start Please Pass the Manners. There are many compelling reasons to offer these classes.

I have seen so many children unable to answer questions with more than a one-word answer, let alone be able to hold down a conversation. Many of these children would much rather be texting, gaming or or using the iPAD than looking you in the eye and talking. There is no substitute for face to face interaction.

We have a family dinner in my house almost every night but this notion is less and less in many households. My wish is that families will at least once a week have a dinner conversation that includes everyone at the table without distractions.

Some of the lessons your child or teen will learn...
  • Initiating conversation
  • Desired table manners
  • Preferred body language
  • Proper introductions
Affiliations & Recognition
  • National Speakers Association
  • Visit Phoenix
  • Boys and Girls Club

A Family That Thanks Together...

familyphotoMy mother taught me from a very young age that a written thank you note was not a choice, but always necessary, when you received a gift or had dinner at someone’s house. My four children have learned that they must incorporate “please” and “thank you” into their daily actions and I regularly receive compliments on what great conversationalists they are. As a mother of two millennials and younger twins I've experienced first-hand the trials and triumphs of passing on valuable etiquette lessons.
