Listen To Me!

One time, after I spoke to several hundred middle school students in a one-hour program, teachers asked how I was able to keep their students’ attention. They seemed stunned.

Through the years, I have met many teachers and parents concerned about children’s attention spans. What about you? Do you wish children listened better? Is competing with all that distracts them wearing you out?

Cultivating A Grateful Heart

A few days later, I saw the Mom and had a chance to tell her about her daughter’s expression of gratitude. It brought tears to her eyes, as she and her husband are strategically parenting to instill values like thankfulness. She was thrilled to hear of her daughter’s confident interaction with me and expression of thanks.
