How to bridge the gap between you and your parents?

Collaboration is very important between parents and children. They both need to be participative and look for good mantra of communication. They must understand the importance of space holding of each other’s. They must engage in descriptive communication. Parent-child communication is a complex blend of non-verbal emotional signals, words, and behavior. Patterns of communication are set even before a child can produce words himself or herself. For example, when a mother says “All done, baby’s all done,” she alternates between high and low tones that help the baby’s brain begin to hear each word and sound as separate. Later, the baby will begin to understand that the separate sounds have separate meanings. At that point, parent and child are communicating in-sync, with a rhythm that builds both the child’s language skills and the emotional bond between them. So what suddenly happens once the language learning job is done? Why does this beautiful language synchronicity from early childhood suddenly turn into an awkward tango,s with each person stepping repeatedly on the other person’s toes? At a certain point in our children’s development, we begin to emphasize our jobs as “socializers” and under-emphasize the emotional tone in our communication. The topic of conversations begins to revolve around the behaviors we want our children to show on their own. Parent must acquire way of cool talking and shouldn’t be judgmental.
