Arabian communication style
Arab communities hold a great respect for the eldest, the most respectable one in the family is the oldest one. Children keep obeying their parents till they get old and die, they also obey their teachers(Starrett,1998,p (.Children and teenagers don’t leave the family house until they grow up and get married ,some of them stays up to their fortieth.

Arab teenagers seem to be more difficult to deal with, they prefer dealing and listening to their friends rather than their parents, and keep making some family problems. This period is the most difficult in the Arab’s family life. Friendship between similar sexes is the appropriate kind of relationships between Arab children and youth, because friendship between boys and girls is likely forbidden by Arabian religion and customs.

Family reunions are done on regular basis many times of the year. In Religious days and festivals beside the regular weekly visits for parents after the children of the family get married. The third generation “Grand children” in each family obey and respect their grandparents also. Arab families count on religion in the first place to do every thing in their life especially abroad. They keep more and more attached to their original religion and teach their children in a community schools related to their national group or religion. This may produce many problems with community they live in, like the “Hijab” problem in France few years ago. This kind of problems and attitudes may make their daily life in the foreign communities harder(Bayomi,2006).

Many Arabs in USA and other countries are successful and respectable persons, who try to make their way in a stranger community. This is needed to be respected.
