May 11-15 is National Etiquette Week, an event founded in 1997 by children's etiquette consultant Sandra Morisset. What a great way to celebrate the importance of courtesy, civility, and good manners—not just once a year for a week, but in the little, ordinary moments that make up everyday life.
So, how are we kicking it off?
For excellent examples of Modern Manners, check out our favorite book - "Modern Manners: Tools to Take you to the Top" by Dorothea Johnson and Liv Taylor. (We'd love it even if Dorothea Johnson, founder of the Protocol School of Washington, hasn't called us "the nation's most outstanding source of children's etiquette training"!)
"Modern Manners" is now being translated for readers in Russia, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Japan, Netherlands...it's a good time for you to find a copy, too!
We'll see you tomorrow for NEW Day 2!
