silent communication

straight from the heart
my daughter ekasmayi (esha) has a very interesting way of showing her anger. yesterday she felt slighted and refused to talk to us for sometime. later after cajoling her she opened up on the reason for her silent anger. we had asked her if she wanted to go out to eat and she had initially said no. later she felt that she had taken a wrong decision and was regretting it- the reason for not speaking to parents.
even those who are close sometimes don't open up. communication is such an important means of stability in a family or society. when one member clams up there is tension in the air and uncertainity. open communication would certainly clear the air and also give one a chance to let off steam that other wise has the potential to burst into an ugly situation. easy said than done, right romal.

i guess silent communication is very much necessary at times...if not misinterpreted, it helps you to convey all that you couldnt if u were ever allowed to speak...i have noticed that in you sir, you silently convey those messages....

I do not yet have a daughter. But i did face a similar situation two weeks ago with a boy of five. I know how it feels... Total anxiety till they utter a word... at a point i felt it would even be better if he screamed at me...

hi phani, wish you have a daughter some day. but you have a long way to go to understand the facts of life. i mean, you need to get yourself a career and all that before settling down in life. all the best. naresh rao

hi deepti, thanks for your comment.the funda behind my daughter's name is mired in high philosophy. but to put it in layman's terms Ekasmayi means 'the one and only one'. naresh rao

interesting post. It is very interesting that your daughter took her anger out on you because of her own choice.

I wonder how common this is with children?
