Hey guys, Chris and Melissa here!
Before you listen to this episode, we have a question for you...think back to the last conversation you had. Did you listen to respond or did you listen to hear?
Those two things may sound the same but when put into practice they have very different outcomes. In today’s episode, we have an open discussion about learning to become better listeners and creating space for each other and our children so that they can be who they really are. We found that when we took a step back and really heard what our kids were saying it opened up more free communication between us, and it also helped them learn more about themselves.
We talk about our journey of learning to listen to each other and how asking the hard questions helped to learn more about each other, ourselves, and created trust and authenticity in our relationship. It’s easier to stay on the surface and not ask hard or confronting questions but diving in and really hearing what the other person is saying brings so much joy and openness to those around you!
You’ll learn about the resources that have helped us through this journey as well as some helpful tips from us to start incorporating real listening into your life today. Check out the links below and start listening to those closest to you in a way that lets you actually see them!
