Good posting, Sheila. One of the problems I think we face nowadays, with the highly mobile populations we have, is that the subtleties and nuances of language, both spoken and body, vary considerably. The reason we may communicate better if our grandparents and parents lived in the same neighborhood is that we truly do speak the same language. Poor communication, then, may occur not because we aren't listening to each other but because we're just not getting the nuances of what's being said. It's getting worse because there are few, if any, generational neighborhoods in the US anymore. People living in any one neighborhood are more and more frequently from many different places. In cohousing, this is a given; we're all from different places! Hopefully, our cohousing neighborhoods will encourage our children to stay and, in a generation or two, they'll all speak the same language. In the meantime, ever notice how easy it is to talk to folks from other cohousing neighborhoods? Having common experiences has given us a common language. That's pretty cool.
