We just spent a few days visiting with my son and his wife and our three grandkids. It is always interesting the conversations you have with children and you can learn a lot from them if you keep your ears open.
My oldest grandson and I walked up to the local coffee shop one morning. The whole way a roundtrip of 3 miles he asked questions about his Dad, his uncles, how they got on together, what they liked to do, what games they played etc. It was fun to see how interested he was in comparing his life with his Dad's. So, I learned to ask plenty of questions, you never know where the conversation will go when asking questions or what you will uncover, so you need to listen as well.
Ask for what you want
My grand daughter, the first girl in our family, with three sons and two grand sons, she was a welcome addition. She may be only almost 3, but she knows what she wants and she asks for it. She is also persistent and doesn't give up easily. I learnt to ask for what I want, you may not always get it, but sometimes you might. Like when your grandfather buys you a special treat or reads you one more story when you should be already asleep.
Watch what goes on around you
When you are the youngest sometimes you end up on your own, so you need to be able to entertain yourself. Watching my grand daughter I saw she entered her own little world, using her imagination. It was lots of fun to realize how much she piscks up from obviously watching what goes on around her and learns from it and re-enacts it in her own little play world. They always say kids don't do what you tell them, they do what they see you doing. There is never nothing happening, so pay attention, to body language to conversations, and you might learn something new.
When we help Tredyffrin Easttown clients sell or buy a home we use all three of these, we ask plenty of questions, when we negotiate we ask for what we want and we pay attention to what is going on around us as it can help us find a client a home before it hits the market or we can notice that what we are being told is not necessarily the whole story.
