Loving our children means actively listening to them.
The whirlwind society we live in hinges on words like multi-task, more, and faster. These concepts are contrary to active listening. Active listening means to stop and give your full attention to the speaker and their message; not to just hear the words being said. It involves all of your senses, eye contact, posture, facial expression, a nod…. These non-verbal signs assure your child that what they are saying, feeling, and thinking is important to you. They know they have value. They are loved!
