“My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed all the information you shared during the parental recap this past weekend. I find myself talking non-stop about the program to the boys, and I’ve been using the information in my day to day life as well. Without a doubt, attending your class was one of the best things to happen to our children. It is extremely hard to put into words just how great you are and how informational the class was. Regards and a BIG thank you!”

“I am delighted to report what a positive difference the Art of Etiquette for Youth has made in the life of my daughter, as well as, the impact on our family dynamics. You were truly able to touch the heart of my daughter and enabled her to see her challenges in a different light, resulting in greater confidence and a brighter outlook all together. For that, I am indebted and so grateful! [My daughter was] willing to engage in conversation and appeared certain she has something to contribute and a readiness to enjoy what others might share without losing herself. What a nugget of gold! Thank you for reaching our daughter in a way we have not been able to as her parents. Of course, mom, dad and siblings enjoyed learning some of the proper behaviors at the dinner table, too. Our family was definitely positively affected upon our daughter’s return and I am so very grateful for you and your program!”

“I told my daughter and her friend Stella, they were going to a ‘Manners Camp’. Poor Olivia was aghast when she realized what she was in for. When I picked the girls up three hours later I was amazed! They both were bubbling with information and excitement. We went home and they showed me the correct way to set the table, hold their utensils, use their napkins and push in their chairs! I’m happy to say it wasn’t a flash in the pan, they continue to use what they learned. You must be the ‘Mary Poppins’ of manners to make two 11-year-old tomboys so excited!”
