Roeser Home Remodeling of St. Louis realizes the idea of effective communication is not new. Most of us would agree that for any relationship to be a success, there must be good communication. We must be able to hear correctly.

Take for example a couple who were very different in their communicating style. They even joked that when she heard him talk, all she heard was, Blah Blah Blah Blah Blah. When he heard her talk, all he heard was Eek Eek Eek Eek Eek. Was one style of communication any better than the other? No. Each had their own unique style of communication. Did they learn how to effectively communicate even though they were so different? Absolutely. They have been married over 30 years.
