Family Issues That Shut Down Communication

Relationships - General

    Thinking Without Conversing

    So often family members think something that is not true. It could have been heard by the grape vine and not talked about with the person on a realistic and personal level. The hear say is then left to stew in the family member's mind and the truth might never be told. When there is doubt some people shut down communication. Time goes by and the little things that could have been solved with some talk are never addressed and therefore not resolved. This can be so hard to mend since time has elapsed and some of the thoughts are blurred as months go into years.

    Believing and Not Checking

    Not everything that is told is the truth. It does not mean the person concocting the story is lying, but they just might not know the core facts. Quite often people do not ask a person "How do you know what you are saying is true?" If they did, many more times people would verify the statements and not believe all that was told to them. Checking with the source is always a good solution for finding out the truth. Tact should be used to find out the honesty instead of charging in like a bull in the china shop.

    Favoritism In Family

    Anytime a person is favored above another the family problems begin to appear. The person being favored might not even like the fact that they are being given special privileges and above the normal treatment. The person being singled out to be left out, ignored or made to feel less than the other is hurt many times over. Communication is often shut down and this problem is not discussed. Comparing siblings causes favoritism. It is best to steer clear of anyone allowing this special treatment towards one person and not another. It can be offset at times with the special attention given to the one who is not favored. The only thing is that the desired attention is not coming from the one that it should.

    Family Busniess

    If you know or have been in a family business you know the pitfalls and the benefits. Think of all the possibilities and you still have not come across all the ways communications can be shut down between family members that are in business together. Dynamics of families can start to fester with the smallest of issues. Unless those are resolved, people will hold grudges, fight, bring charges and even end up in court over seemingly trivial things. Family businesses are a breading ground for more bad relationships to appear than anyone could ever imagine. Knowing this going into a family business is a heads up for all.

    Family Finances

    Lending money is a touchy area in family actions. Even the closest of family members have stopped talking because of money. To avoid the break down of family ties, a written agreement should be drawn and each of the people given a copy to refer to as they wish. Even if there is no interest involved, write up rules for paying back or not. This will be proof between the parties of this financial transaction. As soon as the agreement is met, each of the people can give the other family member their copy or they both can be burned and left without communication being cut off for them.
