  LITTLE LADY - by Editor




Groom your little princess so she grows up into a fine young lady, no less than a real princess.


Almost everything that is taught in a world-class finishing school can be taught at home. What a finishing school does, however, is lay a lot of emphasis on subjects that we just skim over. So, if your daughter has a bad walk, chances are that you will just correct her every now and again while at a finishing school the teachers will ensure that your daughter's walk improves through practice.


Walking



How can you help your daughter improve her walk One of the simplest ways to do this is to make her walk balancing a book on her head. You could also make her practice by making her walk for a short while everyday, with her arms crossed at the elbows, behind her. This will ensure that she doesn't slouch.

Remember, it doesn't help to push. Instead of telling her to walk straight, give her a solution to how she can learn how to walk straight. Most girls do love to learn, and chances are that she will not take your encouraging her to walk straight, negatively. If possible, practice with her when you can.


Hair



Have you ever seen a princess with a hair out of place Teach your child the important of looking neat and well groomed. Her hair doesn't have to be well styled, it is enough if it just neat, and shines with health. Of course, as she grows older, she can take more care when styling her hair, but as for now, ensure that she keeps her hair neat.


Sitting



How does your daughter sit in public Let her put her feet up when she is in her own room or perhaps even when she is at home surrounded by the immediate family, but when in company, teach her that she should sit elegantly. Elegant means sitting with your feet and knees together. Yes, it is proper to cross feet at the knees, but the more elegant way to sit would be to cross feet at the ankles. Also, your daughter should sit up straight and erect. After all, a princess never slouches.


Nails



Take a look at your own nails first before checking out those of your child. Are they clean If they have dirt stuck in them, clean them out. Make it a habit to clean them regularly, and if you cannot keep them clean, then clip them short. Similarly, don't let your daughter grow her nails long as a child, and if she wants to grow them long when she is older, make sure she keeps them clean. Keeping nails neat and clipped or well-trimmed takes priority over aspects like make-up. A great shade of lipstick makes a good impression, but dirty nails destroy it. So always carry a nail cutter with you in your purse so you can clean and trim your nails whenever you are travelling or when you have a little spare time. A great substitute for a nail cutter, to clean your nails, is a toothpick . so if you are ever at a party and suddenly realize that your nails are filthy, just pick up a toothpick, go to the restroom, and clean out your nails. Also, if you find you just cannot keep nails clean, apply nail polish, but make sure you either remove it or reapply it when it chips.

Comments:   I found this article good in certain ways as it gives us a general guideline as what we should do to improve our daughter's overall appearance. Take the good points out of it rather than condeming it.Probably we will apply some of these things when the times comes!! Every mother wants her daughter to be neat clean and be presentable and not Queen Elizabeth(!!!???) that is how one should read this article and try and apply the suggestions.

Comments:   you guys im 17, my mom said some of the stuff from the article to me years ago and let me decide if i wanted to try it, or if i wanted to wait adn try it when i was older... Disha is right you dont want your child to become a queen elizabeth clone, but some of the things that the article sugests are actually okay.. just dont go overboard.. make you daughter acceptable the way my mom made me and if you think its too much than just stop.. the whole walking thing is stupid.. but keeping yourself well groomed is a good lesson to learn...
