Reflective Listening as a Conflict Resolution Tool Positive Parenting Connection

Reflective Listening as a Conflict Resolution Tool Positive Parenting Connection | Jeremiah's Hope for Kindness | Scoop.it

Reflective listening is very simple. So simple that it’s easy to skip it and go directly to addressing the issue. Afterall, when a fight is happening we want it to stop immediately, right? We’re here to get answers and obviously if I address the content of what you’re telling me you’re upset about then you’ll feel better and we can move on, right? Wrong. As it turns out, many if not all of us have a strong desire to be listened to.

 

More than having our problems fixed, we want to feel heard. More than being given some thing that we’re asking for, we want to be listened to. More than hearing “I’m sorry”, we long to hear “I accept you just as you are.” Reflective listening can offer all of that.

How Parents Can Cultivate Empathy in Children.PDF  | Making Caring Common | Jeremiah's Hope for Kindness | Scoop.it

http://sites.gse.harvard.edu/sites/default/files/making-caring-common/files/empathy.pdf


Empathy is at the heart of what it means to be human. It’s a foundation for acting ethically, for good relationships of many kinds, for loving well, and for professional success. And it’s key to preventing bullying and many other forms of cruelty.

 

Empathy begins with the capacity to take another perspective, to walk in another’s shoes. But it is not just that capacity. Salespeople, politicians, actors and marketers are often very skilled at taking other perspectives but they may not care about others.

 

Con men and torturers take other perspectives so they can exploit people’s weaknesses. Empathy includes valuing other perspectives and people. It’s about perspective-taking and compassion.


How can parents’ cultivate empathy? The following are five guideposts based on research and the wisdom of practitioners.


1. Empathize with your child and model empathy for others...

2. Make caring for others a priority and set high ethical expectations...

3. Provide opportunities for children to practice empathy...

4. Expand your child’s circle of concern...

5. Help children develop self-control and manage feelings effectively...
