I was talking with one of my friends this morning at breakfast, and the conversation turned to kids. He shared a story about listening to his daughter, proud that he didn't jump right in with a fix. I laughed and said, “Yeah, I'm bad at just listening too, I always want to jump right in and fix it. That reminds me of that video, ‘It's Not About The Nail.'
