Articles:True Listening
2001-11-06
Name: Editor Avinash was not happy with the way his wife Neena handled their 6-year-old Pranav. Avinash believed that listening to children helps in the their development. He also believed that if parents patiently explained the right behavior to their children, they normally understood.

However, the process of listening involves more than just listening to the words literally. True listening entails that the listener understands the feelings expressed by the speaker. After understanding the feelings, it is also important to communicate this understanding of the feelings back to the speaker.

Do you agree to the fact that listening to your child will help you better to understand his problem? Share yout thoughts!

I have far less trouble getting my 6 year old to listen to me after I started really listening to him. Now no matter what I am doing he gets all my attention when he has something to tell. Also I can appreciate his point of view and can make him understand mine without his getting defensive.
