Food & Etiquettes:Teach Your Child to Behave at a Party
2007-09-25
Name: Editor What is the best age to start teaching a child how to conduct herself at a social gathering? How do you get your child to behave at a party? Do you know of any other functions where a child is expected to be on her best behaviour?

Hi,
First thing we forget is that a child is a kid.4+ might be the right age to teach a child,how to socialise with good manners with others.As the child grows up they on their own learn how to behave in a social gathering and some times they excel even the Elders.For further details visit chennaimoms

i think its very difficult to explain how to behave in social gathering.whenever we r going to such gathering,through out the way i explain everything to my 5 yr daughter and sometime by stories,i tried to tell her but as soon as we reach ,she forgets every lesson.she feels so excited to see children of her age or any person whoever speak to her.she is really a social person and sometime she act so ,that it is very embarasing.then i think this is the child who can behave like this innocently,not like elders who pretends to be well behaved in front and in the other corner they r the one who need to be teach

Feel the part about children as guests is more suited to the western societies. I do not know many Indians to send replies to invitations.

Why should we not inform someone if we are going to attend their party? This way they can plan their logistics accordingly. Just because it is normally not done does not mean we cannot start. Its not a question of culture. Its common decency.

Just like homework is as much about the children as their parents, this article speaks to both parents and children, in that order. You are a nice, well-mannered parent, most probably your child will turn out the same. So pay heed parents and your children will follow.

Shouldn' t this article be followed by another titled ' Teaching people to behave with your children' . I feel sad for children who are expected to sing or recite poems on demand, have their cheeks pinched and not cry, be around noisy, roudy grownups and not be scared.

How early is too early to expect your children to be gracious at social gatherings? My two yr old has begun to smile at all and sundry at gatherings but refuses to go to these people once they are charmed and want to play with her.

At two years old, your primary concern is to prevent your daughter from throwing tantrums. Do not force her to go to guests. She may just be shy. However you can let them play with her in your presence.

Food and Etiquettes
Posture: Sit up straight at the table, never lean backward, nor forward and also never let the elbows touch the table. This makes a good impression. When you are not eating, keep your hands on your lap or rest on the table.

Food and Etiquettes
. \" Please\" and \" Thank you\" are basic manners at the table: Say \" Please\" when asking people to pass you something and \" Thank you\" when you receive something.
