“The most basic of all human needs is the need to understand and be understood. Active listening is the key to fulfilling that need.” – Ralph G. Nichols
What is active listening?
Active listening is a way of listening and responding to another person that improves mutual understanding. It is an important first step to defuse the situation and seek solutions to problems. “When you listen with empathy, you give the gift of understanding.” – Brian Tracy.
What will happen in the event?
In this one-hour session, we will be doing lots of activities so that you and your children can bond with each other and explore how active listening can help your family become stronger. You will also discover how each of you can improve your social skills. Since this session will be activity-based, both you and your child will be getting a chance to participate in these activities. As always, the unique way in which CueKids approaches this concept would be by analyzing body language and teaching you how to do the same in easy-to-follow simple steps.
What would be the key takeaways?
While the biggest takeaway would be the bond you make with your child, the artworks and assignments will also be your treasure. We assure you that! Apart from that the experience of how rewarding it is to spend quality time with your family and children would be unparalleled.
