Teen MannersFrom Malls to Meals to Messaging and Beyond By Cindy Post Senning, Peggy Post

Texting, IMing, using your cell, getting a job, going on a date, having a meal in a restaurant, thanking your aunt for a birthday gift—Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D. and Peggy Post help 21st century teens—and their parents—understand how manners impact their daily life. Cindy and Peggy reinforce the message of personal choice throughout

Teen Manners to emphasize that teens can manage social interactions to their advantage. They show teens how manners smooth the way and that one of life’s most valuable tools is really all about honesty, respect, and consideration—values that benefit everyone everyday. Teen Manners takes a look at questions many teens face, including:

  • What’s the latest of cell phone use and netiquette?
  • How can you make a good impression at college and job interviews?
  • What fork do you use?
  • How do you attach a boutonniere without sticking your prom date?
  • And what is a boutonniere, anyway?



Teen Manners: From Malls to Meals to Messaging and Beyond is recommended for young adults age 13-18.
