Listening is the basis of all our communication It's an essential life skill. We need to be able to decode messages and construct meaning in order to understand and connect with others. It's a CRAFT that we learn, an active process that we control. When we're listening we are still, we make eye contact, give full attention and respect silences. Role model active listening with your kids and you'll go a long way towards helping them be good listeners too www.eardrops.co.nz

Big ups to all you wonderful caregivers who role model good listening every day - that really is the first step to help your child learn the craft of listening This past weekend I went on Carly Flynn's Radio LIVE show to talk about the Eardrops stories and the importance of listening. After my son had glue ear I took my media expertise and created eardrops to help develop listening skills in under 6s. Download stories at www.eardrops.co.nz

Listening is a craft that we learn. This takes time and lots of practiceA sincere listener constantly tries to understand and experience what is going on for the other person Listening is not simply hearing, but is how we decode meaning from what is being said. You probably already role model good listening in your home. A loving adult genuinely listening to a child sends a clear message of love and acceptance.

Liz Donnelly. I love the way eardrops brings me into contact with so many wonderful, switched on parents. Please message me if you want listening or kids media advice & coaching. Skype sessions always available. I wrote and produced the Eardrops stories because my son had glue ear and needed a tool to learn sounds and words he'd missed. I'm so very proud that they're in use in thousands of homes, preschools and schools 🙏🏽 💿📀💿 www.eardrops.co.nz

Yoga helps develop body awareness and muscle strength, build concentration, balancing skills, manage stress... The list goes on. 👏🏼 It doesn't even need to be called yoga. A few gentle stretches 10 minutes a day is a great start. 🕉🙏🏽💜🐇 📷Pic is my 2 daughters out on our deck. Lots of stretches and laughs🌸
