Etiquette classes for kids?!


Did you know that there are companies that will purportedly teach your child manners?  I could've sworn that making sure kids know how to say please/thank you, how to sit and eat at a table and other social niceities was actually included in the parental job description!

I seem to remember my parents threatening during my angsty pre-teen years that they would send me to such a program…but it sounded more like an empty threat than an actual slice of reality.

I understand that many parents are getting busier and busier and often don't have a tremendous amount of time to spend with their offspring, but…farming out the teaching of manners to someone else just seems rather uncouth.
