Lately, in the area of psychology and pedagogy on communication, there is an evident progress in theoretical and empirical studies. However, when we consider the quality of interpersonal communication, the syntagma is very appropriate “We learned to talk, but not to communicate according to that how much we are present on the civilization scene”. The need for putting on communication under the academic magnifying glass in focus of our interest is primarily motivated from the testimony of one new contemporary reality in which there is an evident rearrangement of micro and macro communication patterns in the world. That means, today, we are witnesses of the replacement of “old with new”, multimedia communication among individuals which are the deleted historical traces of “face to face communication”. The main goal of this paper is to raise the degree of awareness about the fate of “face to face communication” with a special emphasis on the family or his family dynamics. The basic theories from which it starts is that “face to face communication” in the family is reduced, it becomes a kind of “rarity”, and it is going to “history”. In order to determine the quality, intensity, as well as the implications of interpersonal communication, a family research was realized in Republic of Macedonia on a sample of 869 children from primary school, secondary school and university level. For this purpose, a specially constructed questionnaire was used (PUKOM-20) which sets out several aspects of the “Face to face communication” in the typical family dynamics. Preliminary results, unfortunately, go in favor of confirmation of the hypothesis which denote disappointing results in terms of the type, intensity, motivation, quality and other communicative aspects. It means a clear signal and alarm that the family is ahead of another new challenge.
