Princess Bootcamp: Would You Enroll Your Daughter?

sign up for the momlogic newsletter Tweet This

In a scene straight out of "My Fair Lady," a dozen little girls dressed in frilly dresses took part in a one-day training course at a London hotel to learn how to be a princess. The course covered proper etiquette, how to curtsy, and tips on sipping tea delicately -- all in preparation for this month's royal wedding.

Momlogic wants to know -- would you enroll your daughter in a "princess bootcamp"? Do you think it sends a good or bad message to young women?

I’m all for learning proper etiquette.

If my daughter were interested, I would enroll her. It never hurts to learn good manners, and to receive training in being a princess would be an experience to remember.

I would totally enroll my daughter!!! So many children lack manners and etiquette nowadays, it would be great for more young ladies to learn proper manners.

Almost every little girl dreams of being a princess, why not let her have her dream for a day? No harm done and they come back having learned a little something!

I think it’s GREAT. I actually believe that they should bring back etiquette classes for girls AND boys in schools these days. It’s ridiculous how many lack any understanding of how to act proper.

I think its a bad idea, it sends the wrong message. I don’t want my daughter to wish to be a “Princess” so she can meet a prince to “save” her. I want her to be strong and be able to save herself. I would rather raise a self-confident, smart girl than one who knows how to place a napkin in her lap. There is way too much “princess” in today’s culture. I want more for my daughter than a fairytale.

I would defenitely send my daughter, she is going to learn something from it and its a kind of bootcamp where she can relate herself!!

Definitely! It’s still important to know proper etiquette.
