Parenting Quick Challenge: Listen.

It’s hard enough to listen to other adults, let alone our children. While listening to your kids talk, it’s easy to get lost thinking about what you want to say in response or how to make this a ‘teaching moment.’

Today I challenge you to listen. Really listen.

Today when your kids talk, take it in. Hear the words, but also experience the emotion, see the body language, feel the connection.

Listen to how well he expresses himself. Hear how much joy and emotion is behind what she says.


What did you hear?
