Here is a sample of some things you’ll learn in the ebook:

  • Paying full attention is critical to listening effectively
  • Acknowledging children’s feelings with a simple one word response makes them feel valued
  • Naming children’s feelings makes them feel supported and it teaches them how to independently problem solve
  • How to listen deeply for the feelings below the surface, and how to effectively address them
  • Asking open ended questions promotes conversation and helps improve speaking and listening skills
