With the world of technology advancing and face-to-face communication becoming less common, it is no wonder the many “manner” and “etiquette” books fall short of reaching young people who are fully enveloped in a digital age. Faye de Muyshondt’s socialsklz:-) for success is not only relevant, touching on topics of email, social networking, cyberbullying, and smartphones, but also breathes life into the basics: how to speak, shake hands, make conversation, and behave in all social settings. Although they are not typically taught in school, research has shown that teaching these skills increases academic scores. The book takes de Muyshondt’s highly successful NYC workshop and brings it to the homes of millions in this fun and interactive guidebook designed to direct parents in teaching kids the skills necessary for success without being perceived as a "nag."
