I have saved this cartoon for years because I just love the message! How many times have we been guilty of saying, "mmm", "ahh", "ohh", etc. when someone we love tries to tell us something? Effective communication takes time and active listening. It requires listening with your eyes, as well as your ears. It requires listening without flipping through I-phones, watching TV or reading
e-mail. It requires talking to, not at, our family. So, take the challenge. Turn off the "electronic guests" in the room and really connect with your family. Start building deeper, stronger family relationships. You will love how it makes you feel!
