Hyde TO GO – Give ‘Em 7

Give ‘Em Seven… 5 Fingers & 2 Eyes

This one’s quick and easy.

Have you ever noticed that the simple act of introducing one’s self is a lost art?  Give ‘Em Seven is a simple way to teach our kids – whether they be our own children or our students – to introduce themselves to others.  Not only that, but it can also provide ourselves with a quick check on our own manners in this regard.  (It never hurts to freshen those up!)

Simply tell your kids: “Give ‘em, seven: 5 fingers and two eyes.”

It’s easy to do and easy to remember: Give a firm hand shake with your whole hand and simultaneously look the person straight in the eye… with both your eyes.

Instructions:
Try it next time you are with your son, daughter, or student:
– First, both of you “give seven” to the person you are meeting.
– Second, critique each other’s presentation.

That’s it.
