Express: Creative Communication

2 06 2015

The other day, I was talking with my kids about the movie Big Hero 6. In it Hiro and Baymax, his mechanical nurse, have the following interaction:

[Hiro and Baymax are inside a creepy abandoned warehouse. Baymax sneaks up behind Hiro.]

Baymax: Hiro?

Hiro: [Screams] You gave me a heart attack!

Baymax: [Rubs his hands together] My hands are equipped with defibrillators. [Moves his hands towards Hiro] Clear!

Hiro: [Alarmed] STOP, STOP, STOP, STOP! It’s just an expression!

Expressions are clever phrases we use in our communication that can easily be misinterpreted. In talking with children, it’s good to use clear, understandable and creative expressions to communicate.

How do you use creative and loving expressions with children?
