“Communication demonstrates the type of relationship we have with another person.” Laureate Education. (Producer). (2016a). Characteristics of interpersonal communication [Video file]. Baltimore, MD: Author. While it feels as though most conversations with my kids fit into the Transmission Model of Communication where I’m the sender; doing all the talking, and they’re the receivers; there are occasionally conversations that fit into the Transaction Model of Communication, where there is more give-and-take in our dialog. My son and I had such a conversation yesterday morning on the way to school. My son is ten years old and like many kids his age, he loves everything about video games, including watching YouTube videos of other people playing them. My husband and I have a very strict rule that if a video game is rated for an age older than our child’s age, it is not allowed. Because he has three older brothers, some of the games that he wants to either play or watch videos about are more mature than I and his bonus-dad allow.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
