Show 85 – Nonverbal communication, babies, tuning into each other’s needs

Christa Niravong, mom of 2 young children, walks us through her experiences of nonverbal communication, babies, and the importance of tuning into each other’s needs no matter how they are expressed.

Family Matters Radio explores elimination communication, using Amercican Sign Language with babies, cues, crying, and body language.  Listening for all the ways we communicate and what we mean when we do and say what we do is a skill we learn over a lifetime which helps us to understand each other no matter how we express ourselves. All our movements, verbal and nonverbal, have meaning in it.
