Journal Entry:

Do you think that you communicate more like a child, a parent or an adult? Why?


Communication

Story - “The cookie crumbles” or “The broken limb”


If we are to live and work together, we have to talk to each other.

Eleanor Roosevelt


Points to ponder:

  • We chose how we communicate.

  • Effective communication is a basic component of all relationships.

  • Effective communication is a necessity for success.

  • Therefore, we chose our success potential by how we communicate.


Communication can be broken down into three personality styles:


Child like:

  • This style of communication is the easiest and most natural to use.

  • It is the emotional part of our personalities

  • It is also very immature and the LEAST effective method of communication when you are an adult.

  • To communicate in this form, you do not need to be a child.

  • Many teens and adults revert back to these childish communication habits when they are frustrated or upset.


Child like is characterized by:

  • Giving orders

  • Not listening

  • Topping

  • Throwing tantrums

  • Whining

  • Name calling

  • Yelling

  • Verbal abuse

  • Interrupting

  • Acting out of control

  • Blaming


Parent like:

  • This style of communication has nothing to do with age or being a mother or father.

  • Is the rule giver, reprimander and, as you grow older, your conscience.

  • It is the mode of communication that directs others’ behaviors.

  • It is effective in that you usually get someone to comply or act a certain way, but it is a one-way or dictatorial communication.

  • It is usually used to deal with someone who is communicating like a child.


Parent like is characterized by:

  • Giving instructions

  • Directing

  • Punishing

  • Demanding

  • Ordering

Adult like:

  • This style is the highest level and is the most desirable and effective.

  • This is the thinker, critic, problem solver and decision maker.


  • The message you send out affects the message you receive in return.

  • The best way for communication to take place is adult to adult.

  • An adult message is far more likely to get back an adult response.

  • The more you communicate like an adult, the more likely it will be that your parents will deal with you adult to adult.

  • When you respond as a child to your parents, they have no choice but to respond to you as a parent or as a child as well.


Adult like is characterized by:

  • The desire for open, two-way communication

  • Taking responsibility for comments and actions.

  • Remaining calm

  • Showing respect for others’ feelings and opinions

  • Wanting to resolve problems with a win-win attitude.

  • Having trust in others

  • Controlling emotions while discussing
