An exasperated parent a lady in her early 40s went to a psychiatrist with a serious complaint about his only child.
‘Doctor, I am extremely upset about my son. I have exhausted all my options, I don’t understand him. He doesn’t listen to me.”
Doctor calmly said, “Say that again please” lady said, I said, I don’t understand my child. He doesn’t listen to me’
Doctor respected, “say that again”.
The lady raising her pitch of the voice said, “How many time you want me to repeat. I said I don’t understand my child. He doesn’t listen to me at all”
Doctor repeated the lady’s words you don’t understand your child. He doesn’t listen to you. Is that your problem madam?
‘Of course yes’ said the lady doctor omitted and said, well if you want to understand your child you must listen to him. Not by shouting at him.
How many times we are in similar situations. We blame others without listening to them.
