We just spent a week with our nephew, his wife and our grand nephew (who is 3). When his mother is disciplining him, she talks to him about being a good listener. When he listens well, he earns stars and 3 stars in a day mean a special treat (new book, extra time with Mom, some healthy food). When he is acting up, she talks about his not being a good listener. What a great way to help him learn discipline. Good listening is a life long skill and she is asking him to improve something he has control over, not telling him he is a bad kid. I was so impressed with both of their parenting skills. They have a happy, healthy, loving boy.

I will be an active listener today. I am ready to learn whatever God/Goddess has in store for me.
