Many of the super rich in China are going the extra mile to help their children learn etiquette and manners.
To meet the growing demand of wealthy parents, James Seatton, a British etiquette expert, holds a training program in Shanghai for children aged 7-12 years where he teaches them how to behave like royalty.
At the high-end training courses, the children are taught British manners: From how to sip afternoon tea to royal lunch.
But the price tag is royal, too: A three-hour class (from 11 am to 2 pm) costs 2,800 yuan ($427).
