Do you ever listen to your childrens?

nowadays no one listen to their kids anymore. and this is a big problem because comunicate should be something that teach our children to do.
My mom never listen what i have to say, she never ask me why i'm sad or this things and when i wanted to talk she just told me she is busy and this things... so she never listen to me. do you do that?

  • Listen to my childrens what?

    And while I do listen to my children, that doesn't always mean that I agree or change. I am the parent, I am the decision-maker. They are free to respectfully express their opinions at all times, and I may listen and take into consideration what they are saying or how they are feeling, but I remain the parent.

  • I think I try to listen TOO much lol!! He's only 2-1/2 but we talk all the time - he's very verbal and loves to ask questions and we talk about the whys and hows about everything - I hope I never become that parent who pushes off her child or doesn't want to hear what he has to say.. My mom and I were so close and I felt I could talk about anything to her, I am trying to be just like her.

  • Why would someone not take the time to listen to their kids? My kids aren't to a point yet where they are really saying anything I don't know, but that doesn't mean I don't take the time to listen to their opinions and feelings, that's part of being a good mom.

  • If my kids are trying to talk to me, tell me a story, or ask me a question, I always listen. Even my 3 year old who loves to tell stories, I always listen.

  • I always listened to my children. I wanted to know about their days, the schoolmates that influenced their lives, and their problems big and small.
