"One of the most sincere forms of respect is actually listening to what another has to say." ~ Bryant H. McGill
I hear it so often I can barely stand listening to it anymore (pun intended). Parents regularly complain that their children never listen to them...never. Besides the drama of that statement, I find it challenging because I see and hear how many of us, as parents, don’t listen to our children.
We are distracted by so many things: a phone call, our to-do list, work, tomorrow’s activities, tonight’s dinner...the list could go on and on.
