Brunch: A Genesis Child Theme for Food & Lifestyle Bloggers

How well does your child listen to you?  Like most kids, my son, 8 years, listens sometimes and other times not.  Last year I had a particularly difficult time getting him to listen.  I was so frustrated and thought he was probably trying to be the "ruler" as he was going through a phase of "the man knows more", "men are rulers of the house" and "you are just a girl".

Then one day I passed by a sign with the well known phrase: “Listen like a sponge”.  I got goose bumps, it was as if the sign was talking to me.  Later back at home, when my son spoke to me about a project he was working on, I put down what I was doing, sat before him and really listened to what he had to say.  At first he was surprised, then excited and at the end of it all I could sense he was fulfilled.

Amazingly, when I then asked him to do his chores he happily said, “Yes mom, sure mom”.  I laughed at myself for having spent so much sweat over trying to change my son when the real change lay with me.
