Jill Rigby is the author of Manners of the Heart and Manners of the Heart at Home, the in-home companion, which are both being used in schools and homes across the country. Jill is a popular speaker and workshop leader with her seminar, "Raising Respectful Children in a Disrespectful World" and a series for parents and children, "The Heart of the Family Weekend." She uses music, humor and practical suggestions to help parents and educators grasp the critical importance of these life lessons. Stressing that education must begin in the heart --- in the heart of the educator (parents, teachers, grandparents, etc.), as well as in the heart of the child --- Jill is determined to bring the old standard of respectfulness into a new era.
