A Song About Listening

Posted Dec 26 2012 2:39pm

Have you ever been having a conversation with someone, only to suddenly realize that they weren’t listening at all? Or, on the other hand, have you ever been having a conversation with someone and discovered your mind wandering off and that you weren’t listening?

Many of the children that I work with have difficulty showing that they are listening! Often, they are listening, but have difficulty demonstrating to others that they are. Since this is a goal area for more than a few of my clients, I decided to bite to bullet and practice my song writing skills in a planned manner as opposed to the in the moment spontaneity in which it usually occurs!

Enjoy!

Listening Listening all day long
Listening  while we sing this song
Sit up and watch, Hear what is said
and don’t interrupt!
Is what good listeners do!

Sitting up can be difficult
if you’re tired or feeling bored
But sitting up shows me you’re listening
and keeps you awake too!

Listening Listening all day long
Listening  while we sing this song
Sit up and watch, Hear what is said
and don’t interrupt!
Is what good listeners do!

Making eye contact is when your eyes are
looking right at mine
A better way to show you’re listening
Is hard to find!

Listening Listening all day long
Listening  while we sing this song
Sit up and watch, Hear what is said
and don’t interrupt!
Is what good listeners do!

I know that you hear what I say
if you ask me questions or say “okay!”
Listen so that you understand
is listening the right way!

Listening Listening all day long
Listening  while we sing this song
Sit up and watch, Hear what is said
and don’t interrupt!
Is what good listeners do!

Don’t interrupt someone speaking
It’s a very nice thing to do.
If you have something to say
Wait til they stop and count to two!

What are some behaviors that you think demonstrate good listening? Share in the comments!
