What’s Up Dick

The other evening, my older child Sheryl was feeling a bit left out of the therapy circuit her two younger siblings have been attending. She wanted to let me know how she feels, saying that I don’t hear her- that I am only concerned with her siblings and that now she is beginning to have worries and concerns of her own.

Then, she began to name the multiple reasons why she felt that way and things that were concerning her- with regards to me not paying attention to her, but paying all my attention to her sister Shirley.

On and on she went as I listened for my chance to reply. After about five minutes of active listening, it was my turn to speak.

Shirley, I am sorry that you don’t feel heard.”
