refers to the etiquette used while eating, which may also include the appropriate use of utensils. Different cultures observe different rules for table manners. Many table manners evolved out of practicality. For example, it is generally impolite to put elbows on tables, since doing so creates a risk of tipping over bowls and cups. Each family or group sets its own standards for how strictly these rules are to be enforced.
This is one thing we should never forget ! I have a little boy now, and though he is still young, I believe this is the right time to start him with manners. It is a practice that will really turn into a habit. I will post more details on table manners in the future.
