In order to appropriate the importance of etiquette training let us first define what etiquette is entirely. Wikipedia describes etiquette as a code of behavior that delineates expectations for social behavior according to contemporary conventional norms within a society, social class, or group. Ok that is a bit wordy but simply put, it is the way we behave in specific social situations. Whether that social situation is dining, wedding, party or invitation etiquette it all points back to our character and what is socially acceptable. We have placed value in etiquette training because it encompasses the way we react and interact with others that fosters respect. The goal is to put others at ease and to leave a positive effect on them. In the long run, people will either have a good or bad impression of you. With children, it is best to began to teach them these skills early so that when they are older they will began to do what should come naturally at that point. The more and more they practice certain situations the better they will become.
