Good listening or active listening is a great way to communicate with your kids, build trust, and bond with them. When you listen to your kids and show interest in what they want to communicate to you, it helps them open up to you, share their feelings and problems, and also believe in you.
That’s not all, good listening doesn’t just mean lending an ear to them and listening to them. It also involves
Maintaining eye contact as they talk to you
Repeating to them what they said to let them know that you are listening to them
Giving your complete attention
Trying to understand their words and perspective
Thinking like a child to understand their insecurities
Comforting them with your words or solutions.
These are simple easy ways that when practiced will surely help maintain a stronger bond between you and your kids in the present as well as in the long run. #goodparenting#seemasays
