Welcome to the Every Daughter Deserves a Gentleman Program
What is a Gentleman and Lady These Days?
Corey Lee Wilson - Author
The American Heritage College Dictionary describes a gentleman as: “A well-mannered and considerate man with high standards of proper behavior.” That one sentence is paramount to summing up what every parent expects from any candidate seeking to date their daughter.
And what about the definition of a lady? The same dictionary describes her as: “A well-mannered and considerate woman with high standards of proper behavior,” the same requirement as a gentleman, and goes on to add, “A woman regarded as proper and virtuous. A well-behaved girl.”
Our goal is to instill the Seven Pillars of Ladylike Behavior and Ethical Values in teenage girls and young adult women so they can become outstanding ladies and lead by example with these essential qualities:
Be honest • Don’t deceive, cheat, or steal • Be reliable — do what you say you’ll do • Have the courage to do the right thing • Build a good reputation • Be loyal — stand by your family, friends, and country
Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule • Be tolerant and accepting of differences • Use good manners, not bad language • Be considerate of the feelings of others • Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone
• Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements
Do what you’re supposed to do • Plan ahead • Persevere — keep on trying! • Always do your best • Use self-control • Be self-disciplined • Think before you act — consider the consequences • Be accountable for your words, actions, and attitudes
Play by the rules • Take turns and share • Be open-minded; listen to others • Don’t take advantage of others • Don’t blame others carelessly • Treat all people fairly
Be kind • Be compassionate and show you care • Express gratitude • Forgive others • Help people in need • Empathize with others
