The way your child carries and conducts herself is important, not just on a personal front but on a professional front as well. Good manners speak a lot about a person's personality and breeding, and it gives
others an insight into her nature and capabilities. This insight may or
may not be accurate, but it is a fact that people judge others on the
way they appear outwardly.
Consciously or sub-consciously, most of us lay a lot of
emphasis on first impressions, especially with regard to business
matters. In personal matters, we often find that we don't like someone
at first, but then as we get to know them better we warm up to them. However, the business and corporate worlds don't function in the same manner. If you don't make a goodfirst impression, chances are that you could lose out a on a good job or contract.
The field of public relations is growing in importance. It's all about
the image now. So if your child ever wants a job in public relations,
her image will matter as well. Only if she presents a good image of herself, will she be able to portray a good image of the brand she represents.
If your child knows that she conducts herself well, with class and
aplomb, naturally her confidence and self-esteem will grow. She will
have more faith in herself and in her abilities, and this faith will
show through in her dealings. Remember, confidence begets confidence,
and a person who is self-confident will cause others to have confidence
Confident people are more attractive to others. You do not need
to be an attention seeker to come across as confident. An ability to
hold yourself well, walk erect, have an intelligent conversation, not
stutter too much, speak slowly and surely, and look the other person in
the eye when talking is also attractive. Of course, everybody has their
own little quirks, which make them even more attractive - so if you
stammer a little, or fidget, or play with your hair, it doesn't make
you less attractive, and, as long as you present an overall image of
confidence, these little quirks make you even more appealing.
It is important to lay emphasis on teaching your child impeccable manners. A person with good manners
is a polished human being, and all of us tend to look at such a person
in an appreciative light. If your son stands up when being introduced
to a lady, says please and thank you often, and has impeccable manners,
he will naturally create a goodfirst impression. Also, children with good manners
come across as more self assured and confident, since they find their
voice easier. A child who has not been taught to say thank you out
loud, may shy away from doing the same. A child that is constantly
encouraged to thank others when need be, to say please before asking
for something, and to apologise immediately on causing inconvenience to
others has learnt how to say the right thing at the right time, and so
he appears more confident.
