Table Manners

Teach your children table manners.  Here are a few ideas:

  • How to use their knife and fork properly.
  • Wait for everyone to be served before they start eating their meal (especially the cook).
  • Chew their food with their mouth closed.
  • If dining at a restaurant, when the meal is finished, place the knife and fork in the middle of the plate to let the waiter/waitress know you have finished.
  • I always encourage our girls to take their plate to the sink when the meal is over.

You never know who your children will dine with one day!!

  1. So true Chris – we must prepare them to dine with kings! I wonder how many families still sit around the dinner table these days. I love the power of the dinner table – chats, connection time.

  2. Love your blog Chris. Love the questions, the pictures, the ideas. You and your gorgeous family are wonderful role models. I look forward to many more posts! X
