Manner Monday®: Life lessons from Mom

As seen on:
by Carey Sue Vega in Etiquette, Family, Manner Monday, Manners

Unless you’ve been hiding under a rock – everywhere you go, the grocery store, the drug store… you name it , I’m sure you’ve seen all of the ‘gentle’ reminders – don’t forget mom this Sunday!

I think we all know many women who are not ‘biological’ mothers; maybe by choice, maybe not.   There are also many women who act as role models and mentors, leaving an indelible mark and positive influence to those whose paths they cross and who are treated like a member of the family.

What is your favorite ‘life lesson’ you learned from a ‘mom’ in your life?

One of my favorite lessons? … “Be nice to everyone.  You don’t have to be best friends with them, but be nice to them.

Mom – Thanks for planting that seed of respect early on!  And thanks for all of the love and support you’ve showed us over the years!  Not to mention the respect you’ve shown to all of my friends!!!

Here’s to hoping everyone has a great ‘Mother’s Day’, no matter how you are connected to your ‘family’.

Special Announcement:

Early Bird Registration for 5-8th Grade Programs

The highest compliment you can give us is a referral to your friends and coworkers. Please share our registration and contact information with any families you think might be interested in participating in our program.

Each year we build on the previous year as we add to the curriculum.  We have many students who continue with us each season, from our Level 5 (5th grade) program through our Passport (High School) Program.  Our goal with the continuous exposure, and gentle reminders, of the courtesies we teach over consecutive years – is to assist you in raising well-mannered young adults.

  • Continued Exposure:  Just as continued exposure to athletics and school homework reaps rewards; continued exposure to the social skills taught in our program will provide lifelong lessons that will benefit your child throughout the classroom and into the boardroom.
  • Benefits and Rewards:  One of the biggest rewards of our students returning year after year, is the virtual ‘light bulb’ that seems to turn on and stay on; the students are really starting to get it and they are very proud of themselves.  Their confidence is building.  We’ve highlighted some of our graduating seniors on my blog

5-8th Grade Levels:  We encourage you to register early to take advantage of the ‘early bird’ discount.  Regular tuition for the 2014-2015 season will be $425.

9-12th Grade Levels:  Registration is open and will continue with the Early Bird discount into the fall.  Register early to avoid the waiting list.
