What You'll Get
Customarily, when a gentleman arrives at your door bearing a goat and orchid, it is only polite to accept these gifts and invite him to peruse your linen closet for a suitable set of napkin rings. Deliver your child from embarrassing goat faux pas with today's Groupon. For $17, you'll get one drop-in etiquette class from Tea With Mrs. B, a children's tearoom where kids will learn practical, everyday manners and poise, as well as how to hunt and capture their own Shrek. Get up to four Groupons per child for a full month of weekly sessions to turn your child into a debu-tot.
Tea With Mrs. B's fun-filled classes will give kids of all ages the skills they'll need to participate in school, make meaningful social connections, challenge their corrupt, incumbent class treasurers, and succeed in their future careers. Tea with Mrs. B offers monthly sessions for boys and girls, consisting of four weekly classes that each focus on a specific topic such as communication, body language, and correspondence. During each hour-long class, kids will learn a lesson or two, make a corresponding craft, and usually sit down for tea and snacks to practice table manners and conversational skills that don't involve boorish renditions of Alec Baldwin's monologue from Glengarry Glen Ross.
Though proper manners can seem outdated and pedantic, Mrs. B teaches a combination of traditional and contemporary manners that have practical, everyday applications to help children flourish in social situations. Through her fun and engaging style, Mrs. B teaches students to engage different audiences and leads them to become witty, charming, and confident conversationalists, just in case they ever wander off during a movie premiere and wind up being interviewed on E! News.
Classes can accommodate all age and learning levels, including children with special needs. Call ahead to schedule, and Mrs. B will add more classes to accommodate Groupon customers as needed (the B is for "baccommodating").
This Groupon is not valid for husbands, just boys and girls age 13 and younger.
Daily Candy recommends Tea With Mrs. B., saying:
- Getting weary of teaching future guests to mind their p’s and q’s? Get some help from Tea with Mrs. B. Run by the sweet and bubbly Becca Czarniecki, the tea room for kids offers manners and poise classes…Attendees set a lavish table with linens and crystal, drink tea from real china, learn to serve (and eat) tiny sandwiches and sweets, and dress up in costumes with fancy hats. – Daily Candy
Though there are few online reviews, one Google Maps user awards Tea With Mrs. B. a perfect five stars:
- I signed my three children (two boys and a girl) up for her monthly sessions on everyday manners - priceless! She is great with the boys as much as she is with the girls, which I have appreciated. She is energetic, creative and the kids respond well to her and what she is teaches. – Stephanie
