Etiquette 2010

If your Gen Y and Gen Z kids know more about Twitter, Facebook, chat language and internet trends than they do about social norms, you’re not alone. A new company in New York is here to help. Called Social Sklz (S-K-L-Z, to stay hip with the kids), the company seeks to impart (gently, of course) basic rules of decorum and etiquette on impressionable tweens and teens. Their course Contemporary Dining Skills and Beyond gives valuable lessons on table manners and “out of the house” dining etiquette that will benefit your kids for years past graduation. And, to top off the experience, a final test-slash-dinner will take place at The Four Seasons, so kids may show instructors, as well as parents, just how far they’ve come.
