Listen to your kid

3 to 5 years

Listening is not as easy as it sounds!

 It's often uncomfortable to really hear somebody else's point of view. You might hear something you don't want to hear. It's uncomfortable to be challenged. You might hear something that challenges your belief system or makes you question your assumptions about life. You might hear something that will make you want to change. 

Work on your listening skills:

  • Listen firstListen before reacting. The true story may take a while to emerge, the real feelings may take time.  Can you count to 10? - Practice!
  • Create a special time and place for listeningYou can even invent your own rituals - discuss feelings and thoughts before bedtime, at the dinner table, walking together, etc.
  • Use active listeningAsk questions and show that you understand the little one's thoughts and feelings

Make photos with your kid, upload to the App. Write briefly about your listening skills and what you are doing to improve them.
