Assertive Communication is a valuable tool for parents to possess, not only in their personal relationships at home, but in the community. As the parent begins to feel more comfortable in asserting their needs and request, they also learn how to accept criticism, accepting they are human and make mistakes. With these skills also comes the ability to advocate for their child’s needs, in the school and with social welfare systems.
