Patt—and her fellow etiquette teachers—believe it’s never too early to practice good manners, and it is never too late to learn!
Over the years, they have noticed with growing dismay the disintegrating quality of face-to-face interaction and communication. With so much business and socializing taking place online, the ability to show respect, kindness, and consideration seems to have taken a back seat to the need for unfiltered, immediate responses.
Patt and other etiquette leaders picture a more respectful world, where children say “Please” and “Thank you,” teens put away their cell phones during dinner, and colleagues listen to each other without interrupting.
