The Importance of Listening

In my work with children, I often monitor how much parents, children, and teachers talk and how much they listen.

On my iPod, I have an oldie tune that I love, because it has such a powerful, urgent message . . . "You can listen as well as you hear. It's too late when we die to admit we don't see eye to eye." You must click on this beautiful 5-minute video to see images, hear The Living Years by Mike and the Mechanics, and capture the importance of listening before it is too late.
