We are parents, who work hard to provide our kids with the best life. To make it as comfortable as possible, provide them with good facilities, excellent education and fulfil their desires. So, the least they could do- kids to listen to whatever parents have to say, right? To do what we want them to do and take our opinion for everything? Right?
And if they don’t, we should shout at them, telling them they are wrong and that we are right. Because we just want the best for them. Right? Hmm, not so much… But if you really want your kids to listen to you, you need to really listen to them first! Wait, what?!
Why Do We Need To Listen To Our Kids?
Respect goes both ways, Conversation is a two-way process… then why shouldn’t listening be a two-way process too? We have made our position as parents so superior that sometimes we forget that as parents, our main function is to know what’s going on in our kids’ minds. And that is only possible if you establish some kind of conversation dynamic with your children.
You cannot expect your kids to listen to you if you are not gonna do the same for them. If you are telling your kid something and they are getting agitated or are being stubborn, it’s only obvious that something is troubling them. So, instead of yelling or shouting at them, keep calm and listen to what they have to say. Your relationship with your children will thrive only if it is an equal one.
