Nowadays the number of youngsters moving far away from home is increasing; not only they move from small towns to big cities, but also more often than not they leave their countries to move abroad.
Whether by choice or necessity, to study or to work, in these times it is very likely that at least one member of a family decides to live in a different part of the world.
When part of the family is living abroad it is important to keep in touch with the different generations safely.
THE CONTEMPORARY MEANS OF COMMUNICATION
All this does not necessarily mean that families nowadays are less connected: in fact maintaining a distant relationship has become much easier than it was just ten of years ago, thanks to the contemporary means of communication.
Having lived abroad for years, I have also learned to rely on the internet every time I want or need to talk to my family. I am not only referring to Skype or Whatsapp though; these days there are numerous other options and even social networks can help us to keep in touch.
Just note that communication relying on social status updates is not doing keeping up the closeness or letting relationship develop. To open up and tell our heart – you need privacy.
THE IMPORTANCE OF PRIVACY
Young adult generations who already use the Internet on a daily basis, will not find the current means of communication particularly strange or suspicious. How to convince family members who do not fully trust the web, though? And, how to keep the youngest members safe online, and not to publish wrong picture in social media?
The right to privacy is fundamental when it comes to the field of communication with our nearest, but is more often than not violated on the Internet. Choosing an application that, while respecting the right to your privacy, gives you the possibility to interact and share whatever you please with your relatives can be a good solution to keep in touch with those family members who live abroad.
On top of that, picking a solution that does not come with advertising and such extra hassle certainly helps the different generations in your family to grasp new handy communication means quickly.
It is therefore possible to maintain a lively relationship with your family, even when living apart; all it takes is open-mindedness to those new means of communication, once you make sure they are functional and reliable. The proof will be in the pudding!
