Product Description

A modern update on the ageless idea that girls should know appropriate and courteous responses to any situation. Good manners aren’t just a quaint and old-fashioned concept. They’re an essential aspect of every young lady’s path to adulthood and the skills she’ll need in whatever she chooses to do.

School, clubs, soccer practice, piano lessons, study groups, latte with friends, dinner with grandparents, sleepovers, birthday parties, shopping—young ladies today are always on the go, their busy lives filled with activities and socializing. Girls interact with more people and in more places than ever before. But all of those opportunities to build friendships, make a good impression, and enjoy exciting experiences can go awry if she hasn’t learned the basics of good conduct, respectful interaction, and thoughtful behavior.

While the formal rules of etiquette are not taught the way they once were, good manners are as critical today as they ever were. 50 Things Every Young Lady Should Know provides a modern update on the ageless idea that girls should know appropriate and courteous responses to any given situation. Good manners aren’t just some quaint idea and old-fashioned concept from the past. They’re an essential aspect of every young lady’s path to adulthood and the skills she will need to thrive in whatever she chooses to do. In an ever-changing world, good manners never go out of style.
