Manners and social skills are different. I would like to think that social skills actually fall under the bigger umbrella of manners but they are both incredibly important because they really both have to deal with how we communicate and interact with others. We live in a world as human beings and we are expected to be social, so if we don’t have the skills to know how to communicate effectively with others, and interact with one another, I think it does us a little bit of disservice. To have manners and to have these social skills, these tools that enable us to converse, get along with one another and meet new people are very important in today’s world.

Lisa Gaché is the foremost etiquette, manners and life skills expert for children from the parenting perspective. The Los Angeles Times named her company, Beverly Hills Manners, the etiquette school to "teach your kids to be polite." Her straightforward and doable advice has been featured on CNN, NPR, KTLA and “The Today Show” and in popular publications from USA Today and the New York Post to Woman’s Day magazine. Her contributions to blogs and websites range from the Los Angeles Times, AOL and The Huffington Post to SheKnows.com and MomLogic.com, as well as numerous parenting websites including ParentsAsk, Momversation, New Parent and Buttoned Up.

In the fall of 2009, after almost eight years of working in her field, Lisa furthered her education by enrolling in The Protocol School of Washington, the first and only nationally accredited school to meet the high standards set by the ACCET and the US Department of Education. She received her certification as a Corporate Etiquette and International Protocol Consultant.
