Universal Children’s Day: A reason to listen

As parents, it’s much easier to talk than to listen. But listening is what our children need us to do. It’s a hallmark of World Vision’s work to involve everyone in decision making — men, women, and children. Every year on November 20, Universal Children’s Day reminds us to listen to children around the world, children who see problems from a point of view that we adults have long forgotten.
