Lifetime Benefits of Listening To Your Child!
Children are born with unique qualities that no one is quite aware of. Like the banks of a river, a parent can provide guidance and nourishment to bring out those unique qualities and help the child bloom to the fullest.
How does one accomplish this? Listening is a very subtle technique of listening a child’s needs. One should listen twice as much spoken but typically it is otherwise. If one spends more time listening, one can discover many things about their own child. Especially, when one bends down to a child’s level and listens with eye contact.
Try to understand your child’s ideas and feelings and try including them in your daily family life. Things that may seem trivial an adult might be significant to a child.
Flexibility in your relationship with your child is a key to listening to the silent needs. Young children grow rapidly and a flexible relationship with parents are critical, so rules and guidelines can be modified to suit a child’s needs.
