This photo is something we all know we need to do.
The bigger question is, does your listening send the message that “I’m here for you, even when you’re emotional?”
Or does your listening send the message that “I’ve had enough, and I want this behavior to stop right now!”
Listening can either be motivated by the desire to provide life skills and information so your child can experience an aha moment and learn?
Or listening can be filled with the desire to make this behavior stop—regardless of what your child needs to learn.
What type of listening are you doing?
