INSPIRING CORE VALUES
Introducing children to the benefits of having good manners and universally acceptable behaviour.
MANNERS4MINORS is not a cultural program but rather a fun, interactive way of introducing young children to the benefits of behaving and using manners that are universally accepted. MISS MANNERS, as the teacher of the program is known, will show that behaving in a particular way will ensure that you are liked by your teachers, accepted by your friends and you will have a better chance in life – a well mannered child that becomes a well mannered adult has an enormous advantage over his peers.
What we do
Manners4Minors is offered Nationally, and Internationally, by schools as a co-curricular or extra-mural programme on a weekly basis
Simply put; Manners4Minors exists purely to help create a foundation for more socially successful children.
To be global thought leader and teacher of the real world values and principles which make up a socially successful society.
Why Manners4Minors Was Developed
Cost of Living
Single Parent Families
Television & Gaming
Relationships with our children
An Act Of Love
Upon reflection of the success with which Manners4Minors was received by children, parents and schools, We spent some time on the reason why a program like this would be necessary. Surely manners and social skills are taught at home? Basically, our research came up with a very simple answer: LIFESTYLE. Our lifestyles have changed and the environments where these skills where handed over quite naturally in the past (family dinners, Sunday family get-togethers, etc.) has, in general, diminished.
How Do We Make Such An Impact
Miss Manners gives one weekly half hour lesson at schools. She is fun, interactive and extremely passionate about positively affecting each child she encounters. She, by nature, is optimistic and caring and this endears her to children. The overall objective for each Miss Manners is to demonstrate to the children what reaction they can expect when they use the good manner or life skill being presented- and the reaction they can expect when they don’t! By being well informed and educated, the children leave with a clear understanding of the choice they have, and the consequence, – and, ultimately, if they make the wrong choice …. we have created CONSCIENCE because they know better.
This is achieved through the use of our four famous puppet characters and the connection of feeling what is expected: what does BRAGGING feel like? Do we like it? What does BEING PROUD feel like? This is the ultimate success of the program: Attaching FEELING to INFORMATION – the most common words spoken by a Miss Manners “And, how does that make us feel?”
