BATON ROUGE - Etiquette expert Marthanne Calvi shared tips Tuesday for when it's best to just put down your smartphone or cell phone.
Calvi said phones have become a barrier to better conversations between people. She suggested keeping them away from the dinner table, or any other situation where you're sitting down and sharing a meal with others.
She also said because many children and teens have cell phones today, parents should really police their behavior because they set the example for their kids to follow.
