Covey Habit 5: Parent Tip
Habit 5 is “Seek First to Understand, Then to Be Understood”. We also say “Listen before you talk”. At school, we try to instill in students and staff that it is important to listen to what someone else has to say first before we speak. Covey says this helps us all communicate at a higher level.
Try playing this game with your child: Say a phrase in two different tones of voice. Using different tones, as you know, can give the same phrase a completely different meaning. Talk with your child about how their tone of voice can affect communication.
Another tip for older students is to ask your child to let you know when they don’t feel you are listening to them. Thank them for telling you, listen to what they have to say, and keep talking until both of you feel understood.
