ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KTVI)- Whether you are arguing with a loved one or a stranger, there is a way to handle a difference of opinions.

Melenie Broyles with Etiquette Saint Louis spoke with the Fox 2 team this morning to discuss the best way to handle it.

 

Tips-Do not feel the need to respond with "No offense but..."

  • Do not consider a social conversation a chance to change someone's mind
  • Do not interrupt
  • Do not assume you know what someone is going to say
  • It isn't necessary to say "I disagree"- simply "Okay," or "I disagree"
  • It is not necessary to have the final word

 

On social media (Facebook, Twitter, etc.)

  • Do not point out or tag people who disagree with you
  • Do not feel the need to comment on everything
  • You will never change someone's mind with only your opinion.
