Facial expressions are one of the most impactful forms of non-verbal communication. Since a person's face provides a platform for one of the most outward displays of their thoughts or emotions, reading facial expressions can give a person all the cues they need to assess and understand the situation.
Understanding and noticing these subtle changes can allow a person to quickly decipher how the other person may react to them. This helps people communicate easier as they are able to gauge, asses and predict a response beforehand, allowing them to steer the situation to a better and fruitful outcome.
Children, especially when young, tend to mimic the expressions they see on their parents, siblings, and close friends. This helps them form a rudimentary understanding of how facial expressions can convey unspoken emotions. As they grow and start to comprehend their surroundings better, they start putting importance on their facial expression to add on to what they are exhibiting as their behaviour.
