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!
