Etiquette for Four to Seven Year Olds

Posted on July 14, 2015 at 3:30 PM

Found a great article written on etiquette for four to seven year olds by Emily Post.


The Golden Rule Of Parenting:
Always behave the way you want your children to behave.
What you can expect…

Sit at the table with family
Help set and clear the table (with assistance)
Participate in table conversation
Use table utensils
Serve and pass dishes
Chew with the mouth closed
The relevant manners…
Asks to be excused
Is quiet during grace
Participates in conversation during the meal
Uses utensils and napkin
Stays at the table until done
Sits up (doesn’t drape over the table)
Chews with mouth closed
Doesn’t talk with mouth full

What a parent can do…
MODEL, MODEL, MODEL
REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT

Be patient
Have meals together as a family (good for family and a great opportunity for kids to learn and practice table manners)
Encourage good posture at the table
Pick 3 most important table rules or guidelines and focus on those
Practice at home for meals away from home

MODEL, MODEL, MODEL
REPEAT, REPEAT, REPEAT
