Have you ever found yourself trying really hard to be a better listener when your teenager is talking but rarely feeling like you’ve had success. I’ve discovered that many times, I was making some important listening mistakes and I didn’t even know it.

You can hone your skills by knowing some of the listening mistakes with your teen you may already be making.
