In a previous one Blog posts Talked our psychologist Ida about why it is important to listen to their children. In the small text that follows below I think about the same. Not scientifically, not psychologically - just written from a (sometimes) desperate parent's thoughts and feelings about the fear that we today forget to listen (and let other people take the place of listen).
It is important to listen because we have to change the world. We mistaken daily for listening and bit by bit we build a generation. In the noise that the generation experiences, listen is not high in course. We run past each other, snail for a second, rush on. One like lurks us that we are seen, listened to; But it is fleeting. Does not fulfill the feeling we were looking for. Leaves us empty. In it we cannot leave the children. We can give them all the amazing digital contributes, but emotionally I think it is more important than ever to be there. In a world where young people scream louder than ever (read about how widespread mental illness is or just look around ..) and experience things we who have been adults for a while cannot fully relate to, we must sit down and listen . We have no right to hope for a better future for our children if we do not listen to them and make the active choices required - private as well as collectively.
