     Education and communication are extremely important between parents
    

    and children. Both elements can affect children’s personality and behavior. The definition for love is different from American to Taiwan. There are different meaning of love between Taiwan and American. In Taiwan,love is to protect your children, and children have to accept their orders and suggestions. Parents are afraid their children who might make mistake. They want the children to do what Parents want and what parents think is good for them. However,there are communication problems between parents and children . I am focusing on five to seven years old childrens in Taipei which is capital of Taiwan.The product which provides opportunity for parent to spend time with children in older to better understand their children .Not only does the product provide chance for parent spending time with their children, but it also creates communication function as well. It is important to build children’s own personality, in order to become independent thinking. The product also help parent reestablish what they think they know. The goal of the product is to educate parents that when to give the children freedom, in order to have their own experience building their own personality.

    According to my survey which focus on how parent communicate with their children.It also to get people opinion to understand how important parent should give their children freedom to build their own experience. I got 26 responses from survey which provides some thoughts. First, parents have power to control and decide what children should do.

    I found that people in States have different point of view towards building the relationship between parents and children compare to Asian country.Following are the common components for communication between parents and children : Eyes contact , environment, intonation, the way of speak,Language, listen to your kids. These elements are not very common in Asian countries.

    However, by understanding the importance how experience can help children build their own personality is one of the important keys to my thesis. It should provide correct psychology data for parent to understand their children. It is important to help parent to understand or meet different specialized field, in order to convey them respect children’s decision and opinion.

    Questions What is the most important element for communication between parents and children?

    Eyes contact , environment, intonation, the way of speak.
