One of my clients sent me a question about a conflict that he was experiencing. Let’s see if this sounds familiar with some of you. 🙂
He felt that social media was impacting the social and communication skills for his 15 year old son. He was concerned because his son had a difficult time speaking at dinner or with the family. Of course this is typical of teenagers anyway. There is something that goes even deeper.
So Joyce, What Do You Think?
Think about it for a moment. When teens text with their friends, they can edit their comments if necessary. I wish that we could edit our verbal communication at those times when we make huge communication mistakes! People who text need to use their mouth to communicate also or else this could be a huge issue in their future. People need to get along with others in the workplace or else there will be huge conflict. Face to face communication is something that we all need to improve upon. Texting is great. I love using it especially if I want to stay in touch with my family. Texting along with verbal communication work well for me! I’m not saying anything that is new here but I decided to bring this up because I’m hearing more discussion about this issue.
What about you
1. Do you see verbal communication go down the tube with younger generations?
2. How have you successfully handled this?
3. What challenges do you still have when you are attempting to have a conversation with a text-aholic?
This is your chance to vent and express your frustrations so we can all learn from each other.
