How to Listen So Your Kids Will Talk
Good parenting depends on good communication. The problem is, we parents tend to over-talk. Not only is this ineffective, it discourages children from sharing what’s on their hearts. In this immensely practical book, communications expert Becky Harling shares the best listening practices to transform your family’s relationships and set your children up for success, including how to
· help them express their feelings in healthy ways
· listen to affirm their strengths
· model how to navigate conflict with grace
· listen to God, knowing that he “bends down to listen” to us (Psalm 116:2 nlt)
