Communication Behaviors in Family and Community

Reflect upon your communication behaviors and observe your family and community for a while.

Do you, your family, and your community communicate verbally often or regularly to express ideas? Do you usually say what you want to say freely and directly? What about using words to express feelings? What about saying” no” or expressing your differences? How have you, your family, and your community used language/words to organize life, coordinate with each other, complain about things, manage conflicts, sustain relationships, show your creative energy, talk to entertain, etc.?
