What is communication?

Communication is the act of giving, receiving, and sharing information -- in other words, talking or writing, and listening or reading. Good communicators listen carefully, speak or write clearly, and respect different opinions.

Strong communication skills can help kids interact both face-to-face and in the online world. Texting, chatting, and posting responsibly depends on understanding how words and images affect others. You can help kids develop their communication abilities by teaching them to use social media responsibly, modeling positive communication, and watching movies and TV shows that emphasize the value of healthy communication.
