Communication, especially using the spoken word (not your cellphone), in the home is vital for children. How parents talk to their children, listen to them, and especially how mom and dad talk to each other will greatly influence them.
Although, our actions are the proof of our words, our words can bring great solace, comfort, healing, or pain to our loved ones. There will be moments when a parent will feel that his child is not listening. Even so keep talking. You are your child’s greatest influence. Make it count.
