Listening. It might seem like a natural process- one that doesn’t need to be learned or practiced. But if you constantly find yourself saying things to your former spouse like "You never listen to me!", "That’s not what I said!" or "Are you going to let me talk now?!" then you already know there’s a big difference between listening and just hearing. Even though it might be the last thing you want to do, listening – really listening, can be the first step towards an amicable co-parenting relationship. In today’s episode we explain what active listening is, how to do it and why being a good listener and getting curious about your partner’s point of view can reduce conflict and get your own thoughts and feelings heard as well.
