Background on Chat: Patronizing Alternatives

When people patronize other adults, it draws a very negative response. Very few adults want to hear a patronizing tone of voice or remark. Yet many do it. This makes us ask why? Why do people treat other adults this way? Is it because they want to demean others? Or could it be they want control over everyone? Or is it that they don’t know how to speak in a more respectful way? Do come join us in in our weekly global #PeopleSkillsChat this SUN. April 3, 10am EDT on Twitter to lend your insights about patronizing alternatives.
