If there’s anything I’ve learned from working at a local school AND having a young child during the holiday season, it’s that manners tend to go out the (tastefully decorated) window. I strongly believe in etiquette. But, when there’s a million and one things that need attention during this busy time of year, sometimes manners…well, slide. Luckily one local mom had a brilliant idea to get children to start thinking about themselves, their actions and the way they interact with others through an easy and fun online character. Meet Sir Dapp!
Who’s Sir Dapp?
“He’s a dancing, rapping silver-haired Schnauzer and a manners master,” says Palm Beach Gardens’ mom Jeanne Marie Tidwell, creator of the “Sir Dapp!” project. The project, now an interactive website, features a fresh look at the concepts of kindness and respect.
Sir Dapp is a Manners Master who gently teaches through example. His fun raps show children the way to start living the Golden Rule. (Do you know it? It’s really cool. Just treat others the way you want to be treated!) His company, Manners Inc., spreads the word all around the world!
Spreading Santa Spirit
The “Sir Dapp!” project also features the fictional band “Sir Dapp and The Paw Prints” in a fun, original and recently released family-style Christmas song. It’s called “Santa Spirit” and it’s available on all streaming platforms.
Coming in 2019…
The Paw Prints are also featured in the upcoming (January 2019) release of a full-length children’s musical album, “This is Our Time.” We are so excited to listen! Each original song was crafted to deliver positive messages that deal with everything from self-image, to the power of words and how they can delight, or be ‘dynamite.’
A fully interactive children’s app will also be released then. “The In The Know Game Show” features Sir Dapp alongside his family and friends. It will present fun situations that prompt children (ages 5-7 and beyond) to ‘sight what’s polite’, discover what’s ‘historically rude’ and much more!
We can’t wait to download. Re-introducing proper manners in our household is at the top of my New Year’s Resolution list!
