A place to start teaching your children to succeed is in the area of manners and etiquette. At a very young age, both girls knew to hold out their hand and politely say, “Nice to meet you,” while looking into the eyes of the person we would introduce to them. The adults they met would respond with praise and positive comments. When their friends would have dinner at our home, we taught them to wait for the host to take her first bite. I love to remember all their eyes watching me as they waited for the signal to eat. Good etiquette breeds compliments and compliments breed self-confidence. Etiquette is a prerequisite in nearly all aspects of life, both personal and professional. It should become second nature to your children as they grow up.
