PALM BEACH, Fla., April 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- The Elegant Way Foundation™ announced today an educational collaboration to help overstretched organizations supporting underprivileged children – starting with several South Florida children's charities, which will then expand to collaborations in Central Florida and Ohio -- to bridge the gap of lost social skills and assist in underscoring the benefits of good manners and civility among children. EWF is focused on serving as an educational extension of these organizations to provide tools and programs that reinforce the importance of establishing a necessary social foundation early to better prepare youth for the future.
"We came to understand in our years of working with youth that children truly gain self-confidence, respect for others and oneself as well as an understanding of good sportsmanship while they are learning gracious manners and focusing on doing good deeds," said Loretta Neff, Founder of The Elegant Way Foundation, K.A.M.PTM and author of Tame Your Manners at K.A.M.P. Safari. "We created The Elegant Way Foundation™ and designed K.A.M.P. TM as well as Tame Your Manners to help provide children with a solid social foundation that they will be able to draw from throughout their life as they mature."
Realizing not all parents can afford to send their children to K.A.M.P.™, author Loretta Neff and The Elegant Way Foundation™ launched their first children's educational book Tame Your Manners™ to provide an inexpensive and timesaving solution for parents, as well as a reference to reinforce the curriculum as a family. In addition, charities, missions, and schools can use the book as a fundraising tool.
Tame Your Manners™ at K.A.M.P. Safari is a fun, meaningful and, most importantly, memorable way for a child to learn manners. Any adult or child who reads this book will delight in the clever illustrations and correlations of animal characteristics. Phrases like "lions don't need to roar," "don't be a whino rhino," and "stand tall like a giraffe" will be forever fixed in a reader's mind.
"Tame Your Manners at K.A.M.P. Safari is a creative and fun way to introduce kids to the concepts of etiquette that are the foundation behind most of our manners," said Lizzie Post, author and spokesperson for The Emily Post Institute.
Author Loretta Neff stated, "Basic social skills are often overlooked or fortified due to lack of time. By offering educational books, we're doing a small part to help enrich the lives of children."
Tame Your Manners™ at K.A.M.P. Safari can be purchased on www.ewbooks.org for $12.95. All net proceeds from the book will go to charity. For more information, please visit: http://tameyourmanners.com/ and http://ewbooks.org/
