  1. It's not always noise that kill listening. My kids don't have texting because I noticed how their friends used it… to talk without having to listen or respond. They understand that, but when they explain it to their friends, the friends say, "yeah, so what?"

  2. Both my sisters and my dad are terrible listeners, so much so that i often have to use half of what im saying to check that they are listening or keep trying to get them to listen properly, often with those and some other people i can come away from a conversation with them literally feeling exhausted.

    I appreciate sounds, but also appreciate some quiet time too, its amazing.
