Hear, Hear

Recently, I was attempting to teach my 11 year old son that he needed to learn to listen better.

“God gave you two ears and one mouth. Listen twice as much,” I said.

“But, that’s hard for me,” he replied. “I was born with a lot of words, and not that much hearing.”

I love your son's response!! He is a bright little boy! All my kids were born with "lots of words", too!! You might try having him repeat back, in his own words, what he heard you say. This gives him a chance to USE all those words, and at the same time confirm that he "GOT" your message.
