New Yorkers—and let’s face it, today’s youth—are preceded by the unfortunate reputation of being brisk and rude (we’re just in a rush!). And, while we’re not apologizing for our breakneck schedules and attitudes, it wouldn’t hurt anyone to brush up on etiquette. Thankfully, a refresher course on the rules of sophisticated socializing has landed on our doorstep, care of one Dorothea Johnson—the sought-after Washington, DC etiquette expert—and her granddaughter, the one and only Liv Tyler. So, before you interact with another member of humanity, take a peek inside Modern Manners: Tools to Take You To The Top:
The DOs:
“…maintain eye contact while shaking hands and greeting someone.”
“…show respect for the invisible personal space of others; keep your body at a minimum of about 18 inches (1½ feet) between you and the other person.”
“…let the person finish talking before you chime in.”
“…answer the phone with confidence and a smile, because that smile can be heard.”
“…return calls as soon as possible.”
“…use spell-check and proofread your message before sending.”
“…be aware that all feedback won’t be positive, because there are envious and unkind people who thrive on negativity.”
“…step aside before boarding a train to allow exiting passengers to depart. Rushing to get on board is not only rude but also can cause someone to fall.”
“…use earphones when listening to music.”
“…take small bites, and you’ll find it’s easier to join the conversation.”
“…keep the toast short and simple. Use the three B’s: Begin—Be Brief—Be Seated.”

Liv Tyler has been promoting her new book – on manners. The Lord Of The Rings actress appeared on US show The View with her grandmother, etiquette expert Dorothea Johnson, to promote the book, MailOnline reported.
Asked whether her eight-year-old son Milo had impeccable manners all the time, the 36-year-old admitted: “Oh goodness no! “He’s really naturally a thoughtful, kind person. But when my grandmother’s on her way in we panic. “I’m not very hard on him, especially in the evening when he’s just come home from school and he’s tired, I’d prefer us just to enjoy a nice meal together.”
Liv’s grandmother Dorothea is the co-author of their book Modern Manners: Tools To Take You To The Top. MailOnline quoted Liv, the daugther of Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler, as saying: “It’s all about thoughtfulness and being a kind, considerate, generous person. “You don’t have to have perfect manners to do that. You don’t have to have a college education to know how to be a kind, thoughtful person.”

News & Gossip  •  By  •  Comments Off on Liv Tyler has solid and healthy relationship with son Milo

Liv Tyler’s relationship with her son is the most “healthy” she has ever had with a man. The 36-year-old actress – mother to nine-year-old Milo with ex-husband Royston Langdon – enjoys the “solid” relationship she has with her child and learns a lot from him. She said: “To have a son was huge for me, because it’s been the most solid, healthy, consistent relationship I’ve ever had with a male in my whole life. “[Milo] just wants me to make him breakfast and walk him to school and read to him at night and help him with his homework – all the basic things any child would want. “He couldn’t give a rat’s ass about me being famous or a movie star or anything. I learn so much from him.”
Liv was raised by her mother Bebe Buell and didn’t know who her father – Aerosmith singer Steven Tyler – was until she was eight, and thinks her upbringing has made her a stronger woman with men “visitors” in her life. She told Net-a-Porter’s digital magazine, The Edit: “I was raised by the women in my life. That’s made me incredibly strong and resilient. I’ve always been able to support myself and my family on my own. “Men are a bit of a mystery to me in a way. They are visitors. They visit my life. I am always surprised when there is one around.”
