For Parents

Manners Begin at Breakfast: Modern Etiquette for Families


Author: Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece  
ISBN: 9780865653719

Marie-Chantal of Greece is constantly asked how she manages to do it all—raise her kids and run her business while leading an active social life. So many of these queries—about proper etiquette for children in our fast-paced, technology-centered world—led her to recognize the need for a modern handbook on children’s manners.

Manners Start at Breakfast addresses rules of etiquette, including basic table manners, social media, fashion dos and don’ts, and party conversation. Covering children from infants to teens is an essential guide for all parents concerned about raising self-assured, well-adjusted children who are equipped to thrive in society and develop into confident, successful adults. Illustrated with charming, specially commissioned watercolors and written in a lively, conversational style, it is certain to become a perennial and parental must-have resource.
