In January, students will focus on “Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood”. This means to listen to people sincerely.
How do you know you’re listening to understand? You say things like, “What I hear you saying is…” or “Wow. That sounds incredible. Can you tell me more about…”
How do you know you are seeking to be understood? Your tone is calm. Your body language is attentive. Your words are not sarcastic or demeaning.
Habit 5 is a hard one to master. I’d encourage you to lead your kiddo by example. Open the door of communication with your student about how you can show them you are listening and how they can show you they are listening.
