About this title

Synopsis:

Essential Guide for Today?s Young Women In today?s society, grace and poise are two things that young ladies are quickly losing. As they grow up in a world centered around of Facebook and text messaging, they are quickly losing the ability to enjoy a poised conversation, carry themselves in an attractive way, and be attentive to the needs and interests of those around them. Gracious Living for Young Ladies provides the advice today?s young women need to grow into poised, polished young women. Gracious Living for Young Ladies is the work of Liz Stover, owner and teacher of Elite Manners School of Etiquette. She created the book to serve as a complete finishing school in a book for young ladies and women of any age. Her goal is to teach women of all ages the power and success that comes from carrying themselves properly and learning to implement the guidelines of propriety and etiquette. Gracious Living for Young Ladies features an easy-to-read style written to the reading level of a high school or middle school young women. The book includes information that pertains to women of all levels of life, from those high in their careers to those just starting into the professional world. With step-by-step instructions and illustrations to help young women understand exactly what is being said, Gracious Living provides a reader-friendly education about the finer points in life. This guide fills a need in today?s society. Not only are young women growing up without much instruction in the arts of grace and poise, but they are also losing their self-confidence as they are thrown into a professional world without being properly prepared for the challenges of life. The book teaches young women how to be a lady while dealing with all of the pressures of life, including school, family and work responsibilities. Gracious Living for Young Ladies instills a feeling of self worth, provides essential etiquette instruction and increases a woman?s sense of confidence in her ability to handle all that life throws at her. This book is written with today?s young woman in mind. It does not use high prose or stuffy language to try to appeal to today?s young women. Instead, Gracious Living for Young Ladies speaks to women where they are, in language they can understand. This is a tremendous need, as many older guides covering similar topics do not relate to today?s women. Gracious Living for Young Ladies begins with a discussion of poise and posture, the two fundamentals to presenting the image of a refined lady, and two areas that most modern young women lack significantly. In simple language with illustrations throughout, it explains how to walk, sit, stand, and carry oneself graciously and with proper poise. The discussion on poise and posture is followed by a discussion on proper communication. This chapter answers question such as: ? What is the right way to introduce someone? ? How do I make conversation? ? How and when do I use a handshake? The second chapter also carefully discusses proper and improper uses of technology. When they are finished with the chapter, young ladies know exactly how and when they should text, use Facebook and talk on the telephone. Other relevant topics covered in the book include: ? Presenting the right self-image through dress, hair, and makeup ? How to behave in various social situations ? Dining etiquette, including table settings ? Nutrition and home economics ? International etiquette The book covers topics relating specifically to where young ladies find themselves today, and also etiquette tips and tricks that have stood the test of time. Whether you are a teacher or parent looking to instill the value of proper bearing in your own young women, or are a woman yourself of any age who wants to learn more about ladylike living, Gracious Living for Young Ladies is the guide you need.
