Manners and etiquette never run out of trend. They have always been and will continue to be a very important part of a person’s life. They may amount to almost nothing quantitatively, but the smallest of acts may reflect significantly on the person’s character and upbringing. Hence, it is necessary to teach good table manners and dining etiquette from an early age, so they become a part of their habit.
Older kids are addicted to their phones, and as we know our phones are a breeding ground for bacteria and other germs. On the other hand, younger kids are curious little creatures who explore by putting their hands everywhere, so children need to understand the importance of hygiene before beginning to eat. Whether there is a Coronavirus pandemic or not, washing hands should be a mandatory rule at home.
This should be an everyday practice at home and also when you are eating at someone else’s house. Even for young kids, encourage them to help, give them easy tasks like putting table mats or setting the cutlery as this helps them become good hosts and better guests in the future.
