The Limits of Communication
A father, driving with his family, said to his ten year old in the back seat, “Hey Mike, want to roll up your window?” A few minutes later his son still had not rolled up his window. He repeated his question, which was intended to be more of a directive; “Hey Mike, didn’t you hear me? You want to roll up the window?” A bright child, Mike answered, “You didn’t tell me to roll up the window, you asked me if I wanted to roll up the window. I didn’t want to, so I didn’t.” Our children usually know exactly what we are saying. When they do not comply, it is usually because they do not want to, not because they did not hear or understand us.
