Tone of Voice
Tone of voice and body language can both change the meaning of what someone is saying.
Be sure that your tone and body language match your words so that the listener understands your meaning.
Your tone plays a part in communicating how you feel.
Try to keep it as positive as you can.
Let your tone of voice be as calm as you can so the viewers feel like it is good.

For example- “I feel _____ when you ____. I would like ____.”
You can use I-Messages with anyone, friends, teachers, parents...
