Wow. Yes. Speak with words of encouragement, inspiration, love, and gentleness. Listen with sincerity, listen without getting distracted. Really give your time, your attention, and yourself to the person who is talking to you. Remember this with your children. Is it going to work all the time?? NO! I promise you that, lol, but it will make them feel more comfortable talking to you and you'll be more comfortable listening. This will carry on into adulthood; that I do know for a fact.
