Keeping our EARS open (and minds and hearts :-) )

When we become present with our children, open our hearts and minds to listen, we HEAR SO much!
Many of my children’s true issues would have been missed had I not listened properly… and many of them were I am sure.
I remember consciously listening to my 13 yr old one afternoon and discovered… in between the lines that he was deeply unhappy about his situation with a stepparent (gone now) and was ACTUALLY becoming physically sick due to repressing his feelings.
We were able to nut out a solution and he was relieved and became well again!
LISTENING is worth it!
