Something to Think About…Listening to Children

My girlfriend sent me a list of quotes recently about listening. These quotes about listening to children spoke to me.

“I think a lot of our problems are because people don’t listen to our children. It is not always easy. They’re not always so brilliant that you want to spend hours with them. But it is very important to listen to them.” ~Barbara Bush

“Education commences at the mother’s knee, and every word spoken within the hearing of little children tends towards the formation of character.”
~ Hosea Ballou

“Don’t worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you.”
~ Robert Fulghum

Have a wonderful day!

  1. Morning! I love that quote from Mr. Fulghum. We never know what little eyes see or observe from us. Always best to be on our best behavior…very hard, I know! I am having a trying day at work but one thing at a time, right? Barbara Bush’s words are very important to remember as well…thanks for the reminders!

  2. I always tried to listen to what my children were trying to say and to understand where they were coming from. I didn’t always succeed, but I like to think that I did succeed more than I didn’t!
