Essentially we need to recognise that these are the tools that most people use. Landline phones and Australia Post is slow and tedious when we really need a quick response. Emails and text messages are also a bit out of favour these days.
I have a great relationship with my grandsons. Texting has been the favoured contact. Recently I discovered text responses from them was becoming rather slow. One day I received a very quick response via Messenger and Facebook. Even better, they initiate via Messenger and Facebook. Good reason for me to home those communication skills.
But it would be unwise of me to become complacent. I need to watch for the next trend and make sure I learn new skills to be able to maintain contact.
