‘Why should I listen to you?’

“Because I have a voice!’

Dialogue from The King’s Speech 2010.

I love this comment. So many times we hear but we do not listen. Marlee gets so wound up if I ‘mm-hmm’ her when she is trying to tell me something. ‘Mum’ she says, ‘Mummy!’ and the frustration in her tone is clearly audible. She is a constant reminder for me to listen when someone is speaking to me. She is nearly two years old and already she knows that her voice deserves to be heard. I wish I still had the same confidence in my voice sometimes..
