Communication is a way of life for sociable organisms on earth. There are many forms of communication and several are used without saying a word or making a sound. With the types of communication in the world, communicating effectively may seem an unlikely idea. Effective communication between two individuals or more is dependable on the way the message from the sender has encoded the information. Effective communication insists that information sent should be received and retransmitted back to the sender without any loss in translation. To understand communication, it must first be broken down so that each
Tardanico discusses how lack of face-to-face communication can lead to miscommunication. She starts off the article with an anecdote about a mother texting her daughter who is away at college and based on the messages exchanged the daughter seems to be doing just fine. She used various emoji’s expressing happiness. No one knew that she had been isolated in her room portraying signs of depression, an entirely different world from the one portrayed on Facebook, Twitter, and to her mother.
However, “...father- child differences in values may be more strongly associated with family and child adjustment than mother-child differences,” (Relations...Parent-Child – pg 14.) Since fathers are typically the head of the house, especially in many Asian immigrant families, they are the ones to enforce the rules and punish the child or children. This leaves no question that a child, especially one trying to find themselves, will rebel against their rule making strict father; creating a strain in the relationship with their father who can't seem to understand the child's rebellion toward him, his rules, and their culture. Along with problems any family could go through, “Language barriers may present concrete obstacles to effective communication, which may increase the likelihood of intense conflict,” (Relations...Parent-Child – pg 3.) When growing up in America, English is the language taught in schools and spoken pretty much everywhere. This serves as a problem for immigrant parents that have children who pick up English faster than their native tongue. This causes a strain in parent-child communication. However this is not the only problem with communication.
Hi Heidy, first of all I enjoy reading your post. I am sorry to hear that happened to you. But, things happen for a reason and it is for the best. Probably he did not have the courage to be honest and open with you. I have not being through that situation because in my past relationships, it ended up in a faded away disengagement strategy and I was not really into it due to my job. I new that those relationships were not going to work because I was working long hours and traveling a lot. Over time the communication was less and less until it was completely over. But once I meet my husband, it was different because it felt different and I just knew that the relationship was going to work. I prefer people to use the strategy of openness disengagement because they are being honest and clear about their feeling towards the other person.
it’s important to remember that face to face communication has a great amount of value in terms of sincerity and authenticity.
1. Do you believe mediated communication allows us to express ourselves more freely since we are not face to face? Use an example from the video to support your answer.
in my opinion, there are many similarities in communicating in person and using technology. in ways of communicating a person can be creative. When people texting, you can send internet expressions. such as emoji, gifs, and little text doodle, also you are talking to someone either way. for example, one of my closest friend talks to me when he needs help on his homework, that he forgot to do or sometimes he texts me with expression to help me understand how serious it is. Another similarity is communicating in person and technology can be time-consuming. I stay like three months from calling my grandmother, so when I call her we stay talking on the phone for an hour and a half. Also, when people are meeting new people for the first time when you're texting them or talking to them. This year I met new friends and now we talk to each other when we're doing a project together, or sometimes we text. Finally, the last similarity bullying can be present in both means of
Computer-Mediated Communication (CMC) has increased exponentially in the past 10 years due to the advances in technology. I believe that it has connected us in way beyond anything we could have ever imagined and on the opposite side of the spectrum created isolation at the same time. CMC has increased the number if people that we can communicate with in our lives. We can talk with people from other counties without regard to cost due to broad availability primarily through the World Wide Web. For example, Facebook allows a person to connect with one person or thousands of people at the same time. It also maintains a history of our interactions resulting in near perfect recall of intimate interrelations. As I think of how CMC has changed the
The purpose of this paper is not to teach you, or to show you how interpersonal communication is essential to everyday life at home or work. But, I am going to do my best to at least show you how essential communication skills are in all areas of life by using me as the example. My plan is to focus on some of the elements of interpersonal communication that we have been touching on this semester. While reading our Interpersonal Communications Book, three goals kept being highlighted that I personally wanted to accomplish by the end of course. I’m sure that by now have noticed that I keep referring to my topics as goals. The reason why I’m doing so is because I’m still on that learning curve…an ongoing process. If can recall back to all
The internet has become one of the main sources for people to make romantic connections with others within their own society and all over the world. There are so many social media platforms available to society, like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and the countless dating websites, from match.com, Tinder, and even websites created specifically for certain groups of people, like religious groups or people of a certain race. Why does our society have so many online dating resources? Do people feel more confident online? If so, do they have successful relationships with those that they interact with online based on that higher level of confidence? The purpose of this paper is to understand why people who participate in computer-mediated communication
For the Face-to-Face Communication Tactic section the most effective tactic for college students would have to be the special events tactic. This is because it has a little bit of everything. “Annual meetings, groundbreakings, open houses, grand openings, anniversary celebrations, awards/recognition events, sporting events, fundraisers” (Swanson 563). This is because as college students none are exactly alike and with this special mix it allows everyone to be happy. The most effect tactic for parents would be special events as well. This is because like college students the parents will want to focus on what their kids are into. The social events tactic allows for the parents to get an inside peak of what their kids are seeing.

Some time between the first and second text messages that I sent on 8/04/2017, Daniel, my son, and myself, physically drove to All Pierogi Kitchen and Market to find that Nayaliya had decided not to
