If you could get your parent (or your child) to understand just one thing about you, what would that one thing be? We asked this question of 50 parents and 50 children of all ages. The 50 parents ranged from age 24 to 80; the 50 children ranged from age 5 to 53. Understanding Each Other helps to open the lines of communication between parent and their children regardless of their age. The questions and responses to the questions create dialogue that encourage families to communicate and understand each other better.
