"Your preschool child ..." Quote of Penelope Leach

Tuesday, November 11, 2014

Your preschool child will chatter endlessly to you. If you half-listen and half-reply the whole conversation will seem, and become, tediously meaningless for both of you. but if you really listen and really answer, he will talk more and what he says will make more sense.
