Description


The essential guide to modern etiquette for children
 
The founder of a successful children’s clothing line, author of an influential parenting blog, and mother of five children, Marie-Chantal of Greece is constantly asked how she manages to do it all—raise her kids and run her business while leading an active social life. So many of these queries—about proper etiquette for children in our fast-paced, technology-centered world—led her to recognize the need for a modern handbook on children’s manners. Manners Begin at Breakfast addresses rules of etiquette, including basic table manners, social media, fashion dos and don’ts, and party conversation. Covering children from infants to teens, Manners Begin at Breakfast is an essential guide for all parents concerned about raising self-assured, well-adjusted children who are equipped to thrive in society and develop into confident, successful adults. Illustrated with charming, specially commissioned watercolors and written in a lively, conversational style, it is certain to become a perennial and parental must-have resource.

Praise For…


“When in doubt. . . ask a princess! Because even royals have to contend with social media gaffes and dinner guests doing paleo. Royalty has some unreliable standards of etiquette, but Marie-Chantal of Greece is also a working mother of five and now an author: Manners Begin at Breakfast: Modern Etiquette for Families.”

— Town & Country

“The handsome hardcover volume gives lessons on good manners that all families can appreciate through the words of the influential parenting blogger and mother of five. . . . Princess Marie-Chantal provides practical advice on the importance of raising children in a nurturing environment.”

— PaperCity

“Marie-Chantal, Crown Princess of Greece, knows a thing or two about manners. (Queen Elizabeth was a guest at her wedding.) But when it came to writing Manners Begin at Breakfast: Modern Etiquette for Families, she leaned on her experiences as a New Yorker, sister, daughter, mother of five, and founder of an incredibly charming children’s line, as much as her decades of navigating royal politesse.”

— Goop

“Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, author of Manners Begin at Breakfast: Modern Etiquette for Families, puts some pomp in her Ps and Qs.”

— Vanity Fair

Manners Begin at Breakfast is an elegant call to courtesy and decorum—meant not to shame but to encourage.”

— Wall Street Journal
