The Girlfriends tackle the topic of listening to your kids and really hearing what they have to say without trying to fix the problem immediately. When having a sensitive conversation with your son or daughter, they suggest removing your emotion as the parent and to be conscious of the fact that it’s not about you. Then wait on an answer or solution, as you would wait on an answer to prayer. Have you heard of ‘lawn mower parents?’ Are you one? Listen to the girlfriends to find out.
