COMMUNICATION IN PARENTING

   
The term 'Communication' has various meanings depending on the context in which it is used. To some, communication is the interchange of information between two or more people; in other words the exchange of ideas or thought. This kind of communication uses methods such as talking and listening or writing and reading. However, painting dancing, story telling are also methods of communication. Thought are conveyed to other not only by spoken or written words but also by gesture or body actions.
                        Communication can be defined as the exchange of  information through verbal or nonverbal means between two or more people. Communication helps to simple transfer of information to the establishment of relationships between parents and children, and this relationship is founded upon effective communication skill.
                         Effective communication skill is a vital tool in parenting as human beings primarily influence others through communication. The verbal and nonverbal messages exchanged in parental relationship determine, to a large extent, the structure and feelings in children. Indeed ,the wide existence and the well being of a child are dependent on communication, because the effective component of life cannot be separated from biological component.
   
# parenting is an interaction between parents and children.
And the process of human interaction occur through communication.

# For parents to be effective in their interactions, they must have good communication skills.
They must be aware of what their words and body language are saying to their ward.

  1. Nice article! I agree, communication with children is so very important. I always try to explain things thoroughly to my children. Sometime, putting a reason behind an action makes it make sense to little minds!
