Children desire and require an audience as much as the adults. Though they may seem incomprehensible and nonsensical, it is always advisable that you listen to your child. Instead of criticizing them or ignoring them, you must always try to be a patient listener making the child feel happy and wanted. There is nothing that makes someone happier than being wanted.
