Hosting a party requires a lot of work. It is nearly impossible to greet every guest as they walk in your door. When making rounds, you inevitably get held up in conversation and can only wonder if you spent time with everyone attending.
A good host needs help. What better reason to involve your children?
Actually, there is a better reason. Teaching your children to properly greet and mingle makes them active participants in your event. Confidence is instilled and social skills are developed. A winning combination if there ever was one.
Your guests will never forget that your children
- Made eye contact
- Shook hands with them
- Introduced themselves and other guests
- Offered a beverage or gave directions to the buffet
Each of these is a skill your children will use throughout their lives. They are skills that make people likeable and successful.
A fine gift to give your children – and yourself.
