We all try to teach kids good manners. However, it turns out the “good manners” is relative. Everyone gives it a different meaning, depending on culture, age, background and life experience. That is why a recent Twitter update from the etiquette expert created a buzz among parents.
William Henson posted a message for parents on his Twitter page, saying that children over 5 must offer their seats to adults when in public transport.
