|LDS Youth dating etiquette hand-out :)|
A lovely young woman in our ward asked me to teach a lesson on dating etiquette. When she said it was supposed to be five minutes long, I was very nervous about getting all the important stuff in, in such a short window. My resources came directly from the LDS website, the For The Strength of Youth pamphlet, and a wonderful talk lesson given on the Redheaded Hosted blog. There are some wonderful talks and stories available for our youth leaders!
It was a fun opportunity to be with the youth of our ward and share with them the joy of meeting people who are fun and leave a lasting impression- a good lasting impression. The hand-out was fun to put together too! I used sour patch kids ( my favorite) with a short saying to demonstrate a sour vs sweet impression when we date:
Don't leave a SOUR impression
Be SWEET by being refined, gracious, and charitable
I really appreciated the opportunity and not surprisingly so, all the youth represented beautiful etiquette that evening! Thank you! The bags are just regular sandwich bags folded and stapled with a piece of paper over the bag printed with the saying above. I also put a quote from Ballard on the back. Have fun!
