From the Podcast:
8 core needs of a child:
Steps to get your kids to listen:
1. Go to them (don’t yell from another room)
2. Connect to them (touch him/her on the shoulder for example)
3. Make your request
4. take them (“c’mon let's go together”)
5. Help them if they need it (be as supportive as you can this isn’t a time for criticizing them for what they can or can’t do)
Active Compassionate listening:
Listen without judgement, interrupting, with your full attention (put your phone down!)
Listen to understand and seek understanding
Listen without comparing
THEN…repeat back what you heard them say!
Thanks for listening!
