Tips for Communicating With Others
Stand fast with your wants and your needs: It’s your body and your life.
Using email to provide updates to family, friends and co-workers is useful because it helps reduce the number of times you have to repeat your story.
Learn to say “no” if you haven't already done so.
Be gentle, but firm, with your parents. This is hitting them hard, too.
Communicate with friends through e-mail. You can respond at all sorts of odd hours without waking anyone!
