Teenagers (and adults) would benefit from a bit more chivalry in their behavior. For students, here are some suggested guidelines:


  1. When you see a girl carrying something heavy, offer to carry it for her.
  2. Stand up when a girl or woman enters the room.
  3. Speak in a respectful manner in front of a girl, and even more so in the presence of her parents.
  4. Be appreciative when girls bake cookies for the entire class.
  5. Compliment girls (appropriately).
  6. Refrain from staring, commenting or whistling at attractive girls.
  7. Open doors for girls.
  8. If on a date with a young lady, behave with respect and decorum.
  9. Offer to purchase tickets or meals for girls, and develop a work ethic to provide money for that.
  10. Do not disparage or harass girls who you may find homely.
  11. Never hit or physically harm a lady.


  1. Put your superior social skills to good use by welcoming others.
  2. Do not attempt to embarrass a boy, as in trying to beat him in arm-wrestling or bragging that you did better on a test.
  3. When a boy does help you, as in carrying something or opening a door, thank him.
  4. Avoid gossip.
  5. Dress modestly, not provocatively or suggestively.
  6. Avoid profanity.
  7. Only agree to date those boys of whom your parents have approved.
