    A Theory of Parenting - Social Etiquette

    in Moms and Family

    May 13, 2015


    Today our show is on Social Etiquette!


    www.wikipedia.com says:


    Etiquette:  is a code of behavior that delineates expectations for social behavior according to contemporary conventional norms within a society, social class, or group


    Disease avoidance behavior can sometimes be compromised in the performance of courtesy manners.  Violations of courtesy manners most commonly results in social disapproval from peers


     A rule of etiquette may reflect an underlying ethical code, or it may reflect a person's fashion or status. 


    Rules of etiquette are usually unwritten, but aspects of etiquette have been codified from time to time.
