Join Me For Tweens And Communication Talk at TheMotherhood

Tomorrow I will be at TheMotherhood discussing Tweens and Communication. Tweens and Communication is really important topic to me.

Communication and My Family

I have a teen son (15), tween daughter (12) and another son (8) and daughter(7) right behind. The issues with tweens and communication starts early. I have seen my 7-year-old daughter have communication issues with her friends. Often she (or her friends) will get their feelings hurt because of something they “think” the other person said. When it all comes out, it is a communication issue. Once they talk about it, they realize that it was a big misunderstanding and everything is fine.

As a family, when things are stressful and we all are not getting along, we talk about it. I don’t want my kids to sit and stew. I would rather they scream and yell at me than give me the silent treatment. At least then I know what is going on in their head.

  19. It is really very tough to make children speak especially after they become self conscious. One of my friend’s daughters, after experiencing periods for the first time, became too closed up and never spoke anything even when spoken to. My friend took a leave for a week to spend some quality time with her and make her express her concerns.
