Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner?

Wouldn’t it be great if you could sit down to have a meal as a family and have a guest whose relaxed and approachable style could teach everyone table manners?

Well, now you can.

The dinner table should be a place to connect with friends and family.  It should be a place to celebrate and laugh.  It should not however be a place to worry and stress about which fork to use.  Similarly, you should be able to go out for dinner and not rush through it because you have to get out before the children completely lose it.

Families who share meals together, communicate better and learning as a family only enhances this communication.  Offering your family the opportunity to learn, refresh and polish their social skills at the table will set them up for success whether they’re going to a friend’s house for dinner, a relative’s wedding or an interview over lunch for that job they really want.

Furthermore, knowing the rules of the table builds confidence, shows respect for fellow tablemates and is an essential part of any complete education.
