Parenting Education - Parent-Child Communication.
National Indian Child Abuse and Neglect Resource Center, Tulsa, OK.
Part of the series on parenting education for American Indians, this booklet discusses some of the common communication problems parents face with their children as the children grow older. There are various ways of communicating, such as by sounds, by words, by sentences, by touch, by holding and showing affection, by body language, and by using our eyes and facial expressions. Rules for establishing good communication between parent and child include: no subject is taboo, honesty is required, condemnation is not allowed, understanding as a goal, and mutual respect must be shown. The importance of letting children know that they can discuss anything with their parents is stressed in the concluding chapter. (ERB)
