  • What fork do you use?
  • How do you attach a boutonniere without sticking your prom date?
  • And what is a boutonniere, anyway?

Teen Manners. Is it an oxymoron? The Posts don't think so. It's a family affair with many of Emily's progeny continuing to spread the gospel of good manners. This is a pretty common sense book, but is not one that is going to fly off the shelves. It contains a variety of tips ranging from topics related to incessant text messaging, encountering your teacher and his/her date while he/she is out on the town to gracefully bailing on a party that turns keggish and includes a discussion about dating and the decision to have sex. The main message is respect yourself, don't get pressured into doing anything that would compromise the standards you want to hold to, and be respectful of those around you. Anna Post's website suggests that Emily's humorous commentary on manners, How to Behave Though a Dubutante, demonstrated Ms. Post's ability to connect with younger people while still placing emphasis on courteous behavior. The book is written in very proper language as befits the behavior the authors are promoting. Will students read it? A few might out of prurient curiosity. Some may even snicker at the concept that people could actually behave like this--a snicker that might be reinforced by some fairly retro illustrations. This would be an excellent resource for teachers who are teaching etiquette as part of a family and consumer sciences course or as a part of business behavior. Will it bridge the gap of an increasingly casual generation? We can only hope.
