The upbringing at the dinner table determines the future life of the child

William Hansen, the world\’s top etiquette master, said: \”People who are good at observation can know the background of your parents and your educational background in just one meal.\” The etiquette at the table is closely related to a person\’s childhood. The family education received is closely related. A person with poor table manners first reflects not his bad habits, but his parents’ education and the overall quality of his family. Parents\’ education determines their children\’s education. I had dinner with friends on Saturday, and one of the couples brought a 9-year-old boy. The child didn\’t stop during the dinner. He ran around without taking a few bites, squeezed into the dining table from other guests, grabbed his favorite dishes, and ended up with a bunch of dishes in his bowl that he didn\’t finish. But the child\’s mother acted as if nothing had happened, just chatting with the people around her, as if she didn\’t notice that several guests had soup splashed all over them by the child. While chatting, the mother talked a lot about her child\’s studies. His grades in various subjects were quite good, he was tall and handsome, and he was the flag-raiser in the class. Even so, the mother was not satisfied and said she planned to enroll her child in an outside education class. If the trend continues, in 30 years, will this child become a \”three high\” person with high salary, high achievement and high social status? Even so, I feel that based on the child\’s performance and the mother\’s attitude, he may stumble over the word \”education\” in the future. Because the upbringing at the dinner table determines the child\’s future life. A child\’s upbringing determines his or her future development. A few days ago, a friend told me something that happened during recruitment in their company: At that time, there was a new employee who had graduated from a prestigious university, had a beautiful resume, and was admitted with high scores in the written test. Invited to attend an interview dinner attended by company executives. During the dinner, he talked eloquently, spitted all over the place, and treated other guests as nothing, which was a huge disappointment. Finally, the company told him: Although he has excellent abilities, he does not know how to respect others and is uneducated, so he cannot be admitted… Dining etiquette is very important, because dining is an essential social activity in our lives. We eat with colleagues, friends, and family. We discuss business at the dinner table, connect emotionally at the dinner table, and develop relationships at the dinner table. It can be said with certainty that developing good dining etiquette is an important prerequisite for ensuring the success of children\’s careers when they enter society in the future. The development of this kind of education is the most valuable intangible asset that parents leave to their children. This asset is eternal and infinite. Parents must pay attention to cultivating children\’s table manners at the dining table. More and more parents are paying attention to their children\’s nutrition, but they pay little attention to their children\’s upbringing. We are used to seeing children eating indecently: some will put their favorite dishes into their bowls without hesitation, some will slurp while drinking soup… But parents should not be surprised by this and have become accustomed to it. He even laughed it off lovingly. When you ignore your child\’s table manners, you close a door for your child to express himself. At the dinner table, your child\’s sitting posture, movements, expressions, expressions, eyes, etc., have used silent and rich language to tell people who you are, what your mentality is, and even your attitude towards life. A meal is enough time for you to get to know a person. Therefore, cultivating children on the dining tableGood body language also means helping him correct the bad habits of a wretched and undisciplined loser and develop a decent and moderate habit of a successful person. Good habits that children should develop at the dinner table: 1. Before eating (elderly first, younger second), the whole family should take their places. Only after the whole family is seated can they use chopsticks; 2. Learn to hold the bowl correctly and keep the thumb of the child in the bowl. Put the edge and the remaining four fingers on the bottom of the bowl; 3. During the meal, keep the tabletop clean at all times; 4. When eating, chew slowly and do not speak while the meal is in your mouth; eat and drink the soup without making a sound; 5. , Do not pick up the food on the plate, use serving chopsticks for some dishes; do not pick up food when there is food on the chopsticks; 6. Do not wave the tableware to point at others; 7. Eat three meals at a regular time and in quantity, do not have a partial eclipse, do not overeat, cherish food and do not waste it ; 8. When leaving the table, you should put the leftovers in your own bowl, straighten your chair, and say goodbye to your tablemate: \”Please take your time, I\’m leaving first.\” What your child will be like in the future, what job he will do, what kind of person he will marry, and what achievements he will achieve are actually inseparable from the teachings of his parents when he was a child. The good habits developed at the dinner table will accompany the child throughout his life, and to some extent, determine the upper limit of his life. So, pay attention to your children’s behavior at the dinner table and teach them well! It\’s not too late now!
