Listening attentively to our children is terribly important. But the truth is, most of us aren’t as good at it as we should be. If we want better relationships with our children and we want them to be happier, we need to work at our listening skills. We have some retraining of our listening skills to do. I promise, if you want to show your child you love him or her, there’s no better way to investment your time, let’s begin!
I’m Meg Meeker, MD. Like you, I’ve known the frustration of arguing with kids, and worrying about whether or not they’ll turn out to be great adults. So whatever you’re feeling today, I’ve been there.
As a pediatrician of over 30 years, I’ve listened to thousands of kids, and watched them grow up. As a mother (of four grown adults, who are now my very best friends) and as a grandmother, I know exactly what it takes to raise great kids. There's a lot of parenting advice out there, and I can say that a whole lot of it is bad. It isn’t based on medical, psychological, or time tested truth. My advice is. And that matters.
The most important thing I’ve learned about my work is this: the best thing I can do to help your kids, is to help you. And I know I can do that.
