Help your daughter, granddaughter, or neice become a respectful, considerate young lady.
It's safe to say that young women in the 21st century are exposed to more educational opportunities than any generation of women in history. But sometimes what gets lost in between ballet and biology, AP classes and piano lessons, creative writing and cross country, are the basic rules of simple etiquette and guidelines for appropriate behavior.
Progress is a good thing, but even an accomplished student, a gifted artist, or a brilliant young law clerk is at a disadvantage if she never learned to write a thank you note, understand a formal table setting, accept a compliment, make an apology, express sympathy, or respond to an invitation.
This latest book in the GentleManners series was written especially for girls ages 8 to 14, to teach them the basic skills every young lady should have and every young lady's mother and grandmother want her to have.
Topics covered in "50 Things Every Young Lady Should Know" include:
- Making conversation with adults
- Accepting a gift you don't like
- Using social media
- Dressing appropriately
- Winning and losing graciously
- Writing a thank you note
