Etiquette for our Teachers

Today, I was so relieved to find out that a teacher was not afraid to stand her ground and teach proper morals and values.  A teacher should be a great listener and a wonderful advisor to our children.  Parents need to support our teachers who continue to teach right from wrong.  Some suggestions on how to communicate with your teachers:

•  Ask questions

•  Listen to the teacher, give eye contact

•  Turn off your phone!!!

•  Dress properly when seeing a teacher, it shows respect.

•  Speak respectfully to your teacher or your children’s teacher

•  Thank your teacher

Personal Note:  My son was so happy when he came home today because a teacher in his grade explained age appropriate behavior to the entire class.  Make sure you ask your children questions about different interesting topics that his/her teacher brought up in school

Examples:  Life skills, appropriate behavior for the class dance, being kind to your peers, etc… It may start a great conversation that is always needed with your children.

What is Social Nutrition?

What is social nutrition?  Well, it’s defined and made up by me.  Today in Atlanta, I realized during my certification lessons at The American School of Protocol that my passion with etiquette and nutrition are to be combined as ONE.  I call it Social Nutrition which means being socially correct around food and there is food everywhere! Children love food.  Parents love food.  They love to eat it, play with it and talk about it.  It’s social.

My realization today, in this new age of social media in which we live:  children, moms and dads , parents, they still need to eat.  This will never change and I am so very passionate about both.  I’m not perfect with both etiquette or nutrition, but not one day goes by that I don’t try to learn and improve myself.  Society today has become derailed by poor USDA nutritional guidelines and socially disconnected even though we have the most technically advance connection devices ever.

Social Nutrition is my passion which I am making every effort to pass on to my children. (Just like an heirloom) My children understand when we are around a table(table manners/table etiquette) that taking our time eating what is on their plate(nutrition) comes together every single day of their lives.

Parents, we need to get informed and pass it down, NOW!!!  Fast food does not have to be bad, but we need to think how to get food fast.  Children are going to text, facebook, chat and email; however, we need to show them from the start what is right and what is wrong.
