Good manners are key to your child’s social success. Social skills are important in all aspects of your child’s life, from the playground to the classroom to the workplace. Social skills help others feel comfortable with us and help us make friends. These skills help us resolve conflicts in a healthy way. At Southern Grace we help your children learn manners and social skills they will use for the rest of their lives.


We teach your children that manners are not just words, but they are actions that need to be implemented everyday. As with anything, it takes practice to learn to use manners correctly. We all know that actions speak louder than words and at Southern Grace that is something we truly believe.


Not sure what to think when you hear the word etiquette? Well, etiquette is defined as those rules that govern socially acceptable behavior. Imagine a society where people seek to never offend another, and if they do, try to rectify the offense at the earliest convenience. Then imagine that those who are offended gracefully accept the apology of the offender. That is the goal of etiquette: To make each person of our society comfortable with one another by beginning with oneself. The first rule learned in kindergarten happens to be the first rule of etiquette: Do unto others, as you would have them do unto you. In the world of etiquette, this brings about harmony and peace in society. Together we can polish our social behavior skills by continuing to learn etiquette concepts.


“Manners are a sensitive awareness of the feelings of others. If you have that awareness, you have good manners, no matter what fork you use.” Emily Post
