WEEK 2 - Communication, The Art of Conversation The Stockmans
Tx: Wednesday 2nd February 2005

Communication is such an important factor within the family. It is essential families talk together and not just the pleasantries of, “Good day at school?”, “Do your homework!” and “Go to bed!”. It is very easy for parents especially with teenagers to slip into this trap. Tina Stockman is a single mother to teenager Melissa. The communication within this family unit has completely broken down, with Melissa preferring to spend hours on her phone and computer rather than talking to her mother. In this VT Penny Palmano suggests ways in which Tina and Melissa can improve their relationship.

Penny's Top Tips for The Art of Conversation

* Sit down together and encourage eye contact
Take time to sit down and discuss issues with your child face to face. If they develop eye contact and listening skills as a child, they will continue to use them in adulthood.

* Physical Contact
Teenagers need love and affection just as much as when they were children so give them the occasional cuddle to make them feel loved.

* Compromise and Kindness
All relationships need compromise so try and think of each other needs by showing small acts of kindness.
