Affirmation – I am alert and conscious of my impact on others.
Important holiday dinner table etiquette tips parents can teach their children include:
- When to begin eating. Remind children they shouldn’t just “sit down and start eating.” Begin eating when the host/hostess starts eating.
- Pass food to the right, and always pass the salt and pepper together.
- Know that you should excuse yourself before leaving the table. Don’t just get up and leave. Simply say “Please excuse me, I will be right back.”
- Parents, always model how you want your children to behave.
