Significance of family communication

Q: It seems like everybody in our household has lost the ability to communicate -- none of us spend time talking anymore. I don't know how this happened or what to do about it. Help!

Jim: You're wise to try to correct this issue as soon as possible. Regular and open conversation is essential to healthy relationships. Deep down we all want to know and be known – and talking is absolutely crucial to this process.

Conversation as a family is especially important because it promotes and bolsters a sense of united identity. When kids possess a healthy sense of belonging, they're less apt to experiment with risky behaviors and far more likely to develop strong character.
