HOW WE COMMUNICATE IS VERY IMPORTANT IN EVERY RELATIONSHIP.

Every time my mum calls me for an important discussion, she always wants me to look into her eyes while we talk..she says in yoruba language-''Oju ni oro wa'' and I must confess that such gaze do not last long especially when It is a very vital family issue and I presume such applies to any other relationship amongst couples, colleagues, friends and all that..why do I bring up such a topic? Its about the Undergraduate at Redeemer's University who killed his father...I presume the stone will be cast at him without thinking twice but such a being should be remanded for a good medical evaluation..This is not the time to actually sentence him..

Back to the matter..How well do we communicate in our every day relationship with people..How does anyone know what you are thinking or going through If you do not communicate...If you are worried about the attitude of your child/ward..there are certain ways to check all of that and slapping or beating will not bring solution..Yes they say-spare the rod and spoil the child and how true is sparing the rod spoiling the child..I do know Its not directly saying the rod used in flogging but communication will protect the child from getting a rod and your child will always run back to you when he/she knows someone in the family always talks to me when am lost...

Aside the family environment, a lot of misunderstandings does exist at the workplace..some colleagues are always at loggerheads because they lack basic tips to a successful working relationship..some do not know how to ask or be given anything..good communication will bring understanding, respect and value for one another..How we communicate is as important as what we want to discuss either at work or at home..It is very easy to list a prayer point but how you deliver your prayer matters a lot..personally, It is not about jumping from pillar to post...your heart must seek God from deep within and your words should be heard without you uttering anything...even your genuine solemn tears might just be enough a prayer....
