Family Communication have you got it sorted?
What most parents mean when they say that is “I talk a lot and my child listens” . Is that really communication?
In my mind all communication should serve a purpose.
It will either
1. Move an event/situation forward.
2. Allow you to find out some information that you need.
3. Allow you to move closer to your child and increase that relationship.
Most of the time Family Communication is just words often with no purpose at all. We ask a question out of habit not really listening to or wanting to hear the answer. Most communication does not connect us with those that matter and does not move anything forward.
So before you speak be honest are the words really necessary, do they serve a purpose? If not don’t speak! Try listening instead.
