ROCHESTER, N.Y. - Nov. 11, 2015 - PRLog -- Statistics prove that more than 8 in 10 of us, both with kids and without kids, agree that bad parenting -- the failure to instill good behavior in kids -- is the major cause of bad manners (Bozell Worldwide/US News & World Report Civility in America Study, 1999)

Cynthia Ely, or Miss Cynthia as she is known to her students, is hoping to reverse those statistics.

As the owner of The Refinement Studio LLC since 2013, Ely has taught hundreds of little boys and girls how to be ladies and gentlemen, but now she adds a certification to her expertise.

She has just returned from the prestigious International Etiquette and Protocol Academy of London with the credentials to be a Certified International Youth Etiquette Consultant.

Ely says The Refinement Studio is passionate about reviving traditional values and making the word “etiquette” once again part of our everyday vocabulary.

“Clarence Thomas said, ‘Good manners will open doors the best education cannot’”, Ely says. “To accomplish this, it was necessary to receive training from the best etiquette and protocol academy in the world. It is our privilege to make this international training available to the Rochester community.”

Etiquette is much more than tea parties and good manners. It’s about teaching poise, confidence, integrity, and leadership.

With the holidays almost upon us, Ely’s expertise will add value to any stories pertaining to entertaining, gift giving, etc.

Upcoming events include:

Holiday Etiquette workshop for children ages 5-10 at Midtown Athletic Club - 11/21, 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm. To register, call Midtown at 512-2827. Complimentary valet parking available.
