One of the common problems in today’s society is the lack of communication between parents and children. Some parents, for example, complain that their children do not come to them immediately when they are called. They are often too engrossed in their own activities inside their rooms; perhaps the rock music blaring from their JBL speakers are too loud for them to hear anything else.
This problem is more than just a minor inconvenience. This problem affects the way you raise your kids. You have to make sure that your children tune in, not only to their multimedia players and gadgets, but to you as well.
Lest you start blaming all the modern technology, you have to take a look at your own practices too. Maybe you have been too busy with your own concerns (or your own gadgets) to actually reach out to your children. Perhaps it’s time that you log in to your child’s life and find out what he’s up to. If you haven’t been communicating a lot, don’t rush things.
It might freak your child out that you are suddenly paying attention. Do it gradually to allow your child to adjust and respond to your attempts at reopening and reconnecting communication lines.
