Description

When some unruly children started throwing food around in London's exclusive Lanesborough Hotel, Head Butler Sean Davoren took them to one side, explained to them how to behave properly, and soon they were calm and quiet. News of his ability spread quickly and soon he was giving regular monthly lessons in manners, with a waiting list of more than a year to join his classes. Soon the newspapers were picking up on his story, and now he will star on Channel Five's 'Modern Manners' in spring 2005. So what does he do? The most important thing, he believes, is to make learning about etiquette fun, and while manners are always important some of the old-fashioned Debretts-style 'rules' have no place in today's world: of course children should eat fast food with their fingers, and not worry about eating peas the 'correct' way. Because more and more adults are confused about the rules, they find it hard to guide their children. And this is where Sean Davoren comes in. This book is packed with tips on how to ensure your child is well-behaved, and is something that both parents and children can work through together. The end result is that both you and your children can be relaxed and enjoy yourselves wherever you go.
