Western Dining Etiquette for Families:  "Ms. Lee's Luncheon"

When was the last time you had a civilized meal in a nice restaurant with your child?  Was it stressful or peaceful?

Do you dread hearing relatives comment about your child's table manners?

When you're a busy parent who's tired at the end of a long day and maybe struggling with a picky eater, the last thing you want to do is nag about table manners - even when you feel it's important for kids to learn.

That's why a family dining tutorial is the perfect solution!

Ms. Lee will teach your family essential formal Western table manners while enjoying a delicious 3-course lunch.

Your children are guaranteed to leave the class feeling happy - and you'll smile with pride when you receive compliments about them at the next special occasion!

Bernice's course has been a wonderful surprise for us, me and my two teenage boys. The boys went through notable changes in dining etiquette in just one two-hour session. Bernice is extremely professional and detail-oriented, with wonderful teaching materials. The choice of the restaurant, a nice French one, is excellent, with a simple yet elegant menu, quiet atmosphere, and very friendly staff. My boys could not wait to finish the dessert!
