How do you eat Lobster?

If you or your children are going out with an important person, I would suggest to order something less messy.  The restaurant also may offer a lazyman’s lobster which means, “shell off.”  Order this dish using a knife and fork to eat it.

When you are with friends and family, order anything you would like.  Sometimes you just don’t want to worry about being messy.  It’s called being off and taking it easy.

Etiquette: Children Shaking Hands

Children Shaking Hands

There are wet hand shakes, weak handshakes, grip breaking handshakes, dirty hands handshakes, and many more.  A firm handshake with a warm, honest smile goes a long way.  People are judging our children on the way they look and carry themselves.  When a child gives direct eye contact with a thumb-locking grip, it shows your child is a force to be recognized.

Practice with your children.  Make sure the right hand is extended out, hold up your head so that your eyes are looking into the other person’s eyes, then lock in with your thumbs.  Engage your grip.  Shake once up, once down. Then release.  This is an American greeting that must be learned by everyone in America.   Keep practicing!
