Three options for responding to rude questions
This week’s ‘Ask Emma’ question is from several ladies who would like to know the correct etiquette for responding to a rude question.
The following video is an extract from Module 1 – Poised Introductions from my online signature programme, the Lady’s Social Etiquette & Empowerment Course. Here I provide:
1. Option 1 – A pleasant and kind way of declining to answer, so that one doesn’t hurt others’ feelings.
2. Option 2 – A direct method of declining to answer.
3. Option 3 – A ‘push back’ response which will trigger the person to reflect on what they have asked.
I do hope you find these suggestions useful. Establishing confident boundaries can do wonders for our self-assurance and, miraculously, others respect us more when we make it clear what our limits and standards are!
