“WHY DON’T YOU LISTEN TO ME?”

“No, you cannot have that today!” “No! Stop doing that.” “Finish your homework” “Don’t go out” “Stop playing” “Get ready for school you are late!”

“WHY DON’T YOU LISTEN TO ME?”

In my experience of 16 years where I regularly interact with parents the one question that most of them ask is, “How do I make my child listen to what I say?” or “My child doesn’t listen to what I say, what do I do? I am fed-up of their behaviour” We all want the best for our children and to deliver the best, we work hard not only at work but also at home. We go through the busy streets and reach our workplace, there we struggle hard from morning 9 to evening 6 and sometimes we are required to stay late and work. We even have to work on festivals to ensure that our children receive the best. All of the pains we go through are no doubt for the sake of our children. But sometimes all our struggles seem to go in vain when our children do not listen to what we say. There are also parents who feel disappointed saying that I have worked so many hours and when

I reach home my child doesn’t listen to what I say.
