When a Child Needs to Be Heard: How Mirroring Soothes and Solves.
Whitham, Cynthia
PTA Today, v18 n5 p8-9 Mar 1993
Explains how mirroring can help parents respond to their children's problems. Mirroring, which is also called active listening, reflecting, and empathetic listening, involves listening and responding rather than explaining, fixing, and advising. Mirroring can help parents soothe and solve troubling situations by hearing and mirroring what their children are saying. (SM)
