Today’s quote: don’t be afraid to listen

“The beginning of wisdom is listening. Listening that is empathic enables parents to hear the feelings that the words try to convey, to hear what children are feeling and experiencing . . . Parents need an open mind and an open heart, which will help them to listen to all kinds of truths, be they pleasant or unpleasant. But many parents are afraid of listening because they may not like what they hear.”
~ Haim Ginott, child psychologist and psychotherapist, parent educator, (1922-1973)
