Unlike other etiquette programs

The Emily Post Children’s Etiquette Programs are not about memorizing an encyclopedia of rules. Rather, they focus on teaching you how to instruct children in the skills they need to grow relationships by applying the underlying principles of etiquette: consideration, respect and honesty.

Whether you are a parent, a teacher or an independent consultant The Emily Post Children’s Etiquette Train the Trainer Program will provide you with the skills, knowledge, materials, and confidence you need to teach children, teachers and parents of all ages and exeprience levels about the confidence and poise that come with good etiquette.

Program Benefits

The knowledge of the Posts

Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D. is the co-author of The Gift of Good Manners, written for parents and teachers, and five children’s etiquette books.
