Listening is becoming a lost art in communication says parenting expert
In our frantic day-to-day lives, both adults and children seem to be losing or not fully developing the art of listening.
In the parenting feature, creative parenting expert Nikki Bush chats about the importance of listening, and shares some tips around encouraging the development of listening in our children.
Bush says that there are so many distractions and everybody seems to be fighting for our attention. She adds that people need to be conscious of the way they communicate to each other.
