What's the new etiquette of calling others sir or ma'am? Is it just a southern tradition? Is it only for children? Should we continue to use these honorifics because they show respect, or stop saying them because they make people feel old?

It's "Q & A Thursday!" Today's question is one we all need to know the answer for before we encounter the situation. The question: How do you best help a friend who is sick without them feeling like they "owe" you or that you're bothering them. Also, if you're sick and friends are helping you, how do you thank them at a time when you don't feel like being thankful for anything? Your answers are here: http://bit.ly/1qiCqye #manners   #cancer   #illness   #friends   #friendship   #etiquette

We all have a nit-picker in our life. They're eager to jump on our first misspoken word in order to show they know the "right" answer, even over the most trivial of things. It can drive us crazy! Here's how to deal politely with them, get them to stop, and how to correct someone in a way that will leave them thanking you instead of resenting you in case you need to correct someone about a small or important matter! Please Like, Share and join in the Manners Mentor Movement to make life less "in your face" and more from your heart! http://bit.ly/1NzaVXu #etiquette   #manners   #criticism   #parenting   #coworker

If you're a parent you'll want to know what you WON'T have for 79% of your life. This post is more poignant to me today than the day I wrote it because today my oldest started his first day as a Senior in high school. http://bit.ly/1mIcIfV #parenting   #parents   #parentingtips   #kids   #etiquetteandmanners   #etiquette
