In my books one of the most important but also sometimes most difficult things to do. Listen. Really listen. Don’t just only listen to the words but also to what’s been said between the lines and in the way, the tone, it’s been said.
Sometimes you just don’t manage to open yourself up to really get what’s been said. And sometimes it’s really hard to listen to your kids when they tell you one story after the other. You zone out. And yet, it’s important not to as you might miss the one important message. The one message they wanted you to hear.
