Most of us believe we’re listening to our kids. We listen when they’re telling us about things that they like or want. We ask them questions about things they’ve done, and we listen to what they’re telling us. But when our kids say or do things we don't like, many of us stop listening and start telling them how they should think and feel. Or if our kids tell us why they’re upset with us, many of us focus on defending ourselves rather than truly hearing what they have to say. In this episode, you’ll learn the steps you can take to start to listen to -- and learn from -- your kids, especially when you don’t agree with them.
