Speak in a language understood

"If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his language, that goes to his heart.” - Nelson Mandela

With the passing of Nelson Mandela recently, it seems appropriate to highlight some of his philosophies.

How many of us take the time to think through the language that will most easily be understood by the people we are communicating with?

It’s important that you keep informed. Ask your child questions beyond, “How was school?” Probe to see how they speak to others and how they react to situations. When they share something that happened in their day, follow up with specific questions that will reveal their behaviors and perceptions of events.
