Children’s Train the Trainer – May 2012!

One of my favorite activities at The Emily Post Institute is conducting our Children’s Train the Trainer program each year. I have the opportunity to work with parents, teachers, after school program coordinators, and etiquette professionals who want to teach etiquette to children. Participants learn about my developmentally based curriculum so they can teach programs and classes tailored for kids in specific age groups: ages two to four, five to seven, eight to twelve, and teens.

During our intensive four-day training, participants learn how to teach a comprehensive children’s etiquette curriculum using our seven training modules. There is also a one-day presentation and facilitation skills workshop, two modules to be used instructing parents and teachers, a chance to observe presentations and receive critique on presentations, and information about how to build a successful children’s etiquette program. Graduates may market themselves as “Trained by The Emily Post Institute.”

If you:

  • want to start your own children’s etiquette seminar business,
  • already teach children’s etiquette, but want to learn and use the Children’s Etiquette Program created and taught by The Emily Post Institute, or
  • are involved in children’s education and related businesses and are seeking to make etiquette training a part of your program;

please contact us at The Emily Post Institute for more information about the next Children’s Train the Trainer to be held in May 2012.

  • As a former teacher and grandmother of nine, I like this post very much and offer the following suggestion for a book about manners for the very young students in your program.. In a society full of bullying and self-centered children, it is helpful to teach your children the benefits of consideration for others and being polite as early as possible. The Magic Word is an award winning book emphasizing good manners, which can be read to toddlers. It is a rhyming story of a little girl who was rude, selfish and demanding – and had very few friends. Her mother suggested that she needed to improve her manners; so when she went to school the next day, she thought of her mother’s advice, “What is the magic word?” and she started saying “Please” and also “Thank You”. She tried to become more thoughtful of others, and discovered that she was a much happier person. The repetitive use of the phrase “What is the magic word?” has children answering “Please”!
