teach their children etiquette.

In a group setting, children are encouraged to introduce themselves and one another to each other; they play a memory game to practice remembering new names; and they tell something about themselves to the rest of the group as an ice-breaker. To make them more comfortable, they are encouraged to admit they didn’t really want to come the session, that is if they really didn’t! Walking into a room of people and introducing themselves, and dining with others at home and in public, are just some of the lessons Nancy provides. For example, the children are seated at a table, shown the correct table utensils and how



to use them, and taught to wait for the hostess before beginning to eat.
