An In-Depth View - Children's Training
“This was a wonderful training! I learned the core of what true etiquette really is. I strongly recommend this program to all 'true believers' interested in spreading the word.”

An understanding of manners helps children build relationships, confidence and self-esteem
The Emily Post Children’s Etiquette Train the Trainer Program’s unique approach to teaching etiquette focuses both on manners and on the principles they represent: consideration, respect and honesty. A hallmark of our training is that the curriculum mirrors a child’s natural development and topics are taught by age range: ages 2 to 4, 5 to 7, 8 to 12, and teenagers.
You will learn how to teach children’s etiquette just the way the Posts do. Cindy Post Senning, Ed.D., Emily Post’s great-granddaughter and creator of our children’s etiquette programs, will coach you through a three-day intensive curriculum. You will gain the skills, knowledge, materials and confidence to teach etiquette classes for children and teens.
