Family Communication: Filtered or Unfiltered?
About the Guest
In this digital age we have many communication filtering options. Say your mobile phone rings, but you let it go to voicemail. You listen to the message and reply with a text. That's filtering. This has pros and cons. For blended families, filtering can help reduce conflict in strained relationships. But if new family members don't stop filtering they'll never develop a genuine relationship. The way to add depth is to actually talk and hang out in person. That throwback idea needs a comeback.
