Socially Confident Kids is a fun, interactive and educational etiquette course for kids ages 6 to 12. The course instills confidence and respect through practicing social etiquette in a supportive and relaxed environment. Etiquette and manners for kids is not reserved solely for the upper class and elite, but is a skill that EVERY child, regardless of family income and ethnicity, should possess.
Each child will learn skills that they will be able to use for the rest of their lives, as well as learn the reason behind every rule. Knowing how to behave in everyday situations, enables one to interact comfortably and confidently with others.
Social etiquette is more than knowing which fork to use. It is a tool that allots the opportunity to be comfortable in one’s own skin and encourages the respect, consideration and acceptance of others. Knowing the rules of the game in social situations builds friendships, self-esteem and harmony. It is through the little acts of kindness, cooperation, the words we use, the images we carry of ourselves that matter.
Socially Confident Kids proudly serves kids and parents throughout Southern California. Children’s etiquette classes are available in Los Angeles, Beverly Hills, La Canada-Flintridge and the entire Los Angeles County.
