The article presents information on fostering child's listening skills. Parents should explain to their children that listening would help them stay safe and know what's happening "next" throughout the day. Parents must change the tone of their voice. This will help grab the child's attention enough so that he/she is more likely to listen. The child must be praised when she listens. Parents need to help the child practice listening. They must provide favorite stories on tape for the child to listen to.
