(STLMoms) - "He pinched me, she took changed channel, he did it first!"  Are these some of the things you've heard during your snow days?

So how do you teach your kids manner when they disagree?  Melenie Broyles with Etiquette Saint Louis has some advice.

1. Handle the issue face to face
2. Do not accuse, assume a misunderstanding
3. Explain feelings
4. Be forgiving
5. Do not take to social media

Another important issue here is the example parents set.  I see parents talking about customers and/or acquaintances being wrong and wronging them online everyday.
