Communicating With Your Kids by Karen Campbell

Learning How To Talk And Listen To Each Other

Communicating with your kids

A close and loving family - isn’t that what every parent wants and dreams of from the day their children are born? Regardless of what they want or expect, I’m sure that no one is ever prepared for the trials and tribulations that parenthood brings. Within any relationship, there is bound to be a communication breakdown at one point or another and this nearly always leads to relationship problems. This is exactly the same in relationships involving parents and their children.

As our kids grow and mature and begin to develop their own personality, the way we communicate with them is integral to the type of relationship we can build. Right from a very young age, our communication skills come into play and impact on the family dynamics. Although some parents communicate effectively with their kids, are they really connecting? This is the crux of any close relationship. Having a genuine connection is what it’s all about.

Now, if we want children who we can connect with in a close and loving manner, then we have to work at really connecting, right from birth. And then we have to keep working at it. It would be great if putting in some hard work while they’re young was all that was needed, but this just isn’t the case. As kids mature and develop their own independence, the communication battle takes a completely new turn and the techniques that parents use will either make or break the relationship they’ve worked so hard on.

There have been so many incidences where we’ve seen firsthand, children displaying very little respect for their parents due to a communication breakdown. And if respect isn’t developed and maintained from a young age, then the parents will be fighting a continual losing battle.

In other cases, we’ve seen ‘dream’ children who were always perfectly behaved, suddenly hit their teenage years and turn into complete monsters.

An Amazingly Practical Guide for Any Parent - I was stunned when the opening of Chapter One was, in effect, a story from my own life and an event with my own daughter when she was entering puberty. How I wish that I had read this book before that day on which I felt so helpless as a parent! I immediately felt compelled after the first paragraphs to read the entire book and I'm so happy I did!
