Active listening is a skill that is taught to counselors, teachers, helpers and, if they are lucky, to parents.  It is a form of listening that allows the speaker to talk without worrying about being interrupted, being criticized, being contradicted or being given a solution.

On this episode of Big Blend Radio's Quality of Life show, Sarah H. Elliston, shares tips on how parents can retain more influence through active listening. Sarah is the author of “Lessons from a Difficult Person – How to Deal With People Like Us”, and is also a faculty member of the William Glasser Institute, and a workshop leader and trainer who is certified in Values Realization, Parent Effectiveness Training and Reality Therapy.
