For years, parents have been asking me, "Will you come to dinner at our house to teach everyone in our family table manners?"

I'd love to accept every invitation, but there's only one of me! So, I created the Family Table Manners Boot Camp. I handle the table manners teaching and you have fun with your family learning and practicing together.

Table manners are a building block to being considerate and polite in our everyday lives. It's never too early (or too late) to learn these important life skills.

The Family Table Manners Boot Camp is designed for busy families like yours. You'll be amazed at how simple learning good table manners can be and as a bonus, you'll have fun with your family too!

PS) I've taught thousands of young people table manners through my workshops, classes and camps. I can't wait to share my expertise with your family.
