Children are enthusiastic. They want to tell everything silly things to their parents. They might be expecting an over-the-top reaction from their parents. Because these are the little achievements of happiness for them. However small it might look on the periphery, they are as important for them. Hence listen to your children when they come to tell you something.
The Champa Tree’s thought for the day – Listen to your children
“Listen earnestly to anything your children want to tell you, no matter what. If you don’t listen eagerly to the little stuff when they are little, they won’t tell you the big stuff when they are big, because to them all of it has always been big stuff.”
When we say listen, it doesn’t mean that you should do it for the sake of it. You should listen to them earnestly. What they say should be processed in your brain so that when you respond, it would be genuine. Don’t underestimate the brilliance of your child. They will decipher if you are indeed paying attention just by the way you look at them. If you fail to pay attention now, they will take it as a new lesson. A lesson that they need not tell everything to their parents. Instead of regretting later, let’s just spare a few seconds for their silly matters.
