Take the Time to Listen to Them

“If you take the time to understand and listen to your parents, two incredible things will happen. First, you’ll gain a greater respect for them. …

Second, if you take time to understand and listen to your parents you’ll get your way much more often. This isn’t a manipulative trick, it’s a principle. If they feel that you understand them, they’ll be much more willing to listen to you, they’ll be more flexible, and they’ll trust you more.”
