Good Listeners Needed: People Need To Talk

If you have ever had that special friend that you could talk freely to and share your joys, successes, failures and troubles, you must appreciate the value of the freedom to talk freely in any relationship. Children long to be able to speak with their parents, but often times, the parents are too pre-occupied with work or with “raising” the child with “discipline” for it to happen.
