The Top Five "Do-Not's" for Grandparents - #4 - Do Not Forget to Listen

Yes, as grandma there are things I do not do . . . here is my #4 Do-Not - 
  • Do not forget while the very important thing your grandchild wants to tell you may not actually be earth-shattering, if it is important to them, it is essential for you to put down what you are doing - especially smart phones, computers and other forms of technology, make eye-contact and listen with both ears - and your whole heart.
I understand how things our young grandchildren may say are not particularity earth-shattering, but if it is important to them, then it is important to us. The day will come when they have important things to say and I want them to know I will listen to them.

What is on your "Do-Not's" list?
