Time and time again, when I ask parents what is the most important thing in the help that they have received, I am told that it is when someone has listened. Really listened. So when I saw this Clare in the Community cartoon strip from Harry Venning my first impulse was to contact him for permission to use it to illustrate a blog post.
In truth though, it’s hard to know what can be added to make the point any better or stronger! So I leave you with it as it stands. Enjoy – and listen!
