How to Help Children Learn to Listen

I wonder how many times throughout the ages a parent or teacher has said to a child, “You’re not listening to me!” It’s a common enough refrain that if I had a dollar for every time that sentence was uttered, I’d be a very rich woman indeed! It’s not that young children can’t focus. When something is of interest to them, they can forget everything else exists! But sometimes what we adults have to say to them simply isn’t of interest. We can make listening interesting, however. In this video, we explore activities that make active listening fun and engaging for young children.
