THE FACE BEHIND GROWING LISTENING MINDS

 
JU MER KUNSKAP OCH FÖRSTÅELSE OMGIVNINGEN HAR, DESTO BÄTTRE KAN DEN ANPASSA SIG EFTER BARN

My name is Tina and I am the face behind Growing Listening Minds (GLM) where you, who are close to a child with hearing loss, can find information, materials and tips.
.
I have a PhD in audiology and have been working as a researcher and Lecturer at Lund University for 20 years. I am also a certified parental coach as well as a certified mindfulness instructor but most of all I am a mother of four children.

I guess most parents in the world would agree that nothing fully could prepare you for what it is like to be a parent. It is a process where you as a parent have as much to learn as your child.

As a mother of four, I have learned to trust us, and the magic that occurs when I am there, when I listen, learn and grow together with my children. We have had many moments where we have talked about how we can shape our brains and what an amazing thing that is. We have talked about feelings, about how they come and go, and the importance of being allowed to feel what you are feeling. Oh, how I love these moments.

When our oldest son was 6 years old, we had the luxury of having four children. I am extremely grateful for those early years, but I guess you can all imagine how chaotic it was at times. One thing that always seemed to make everything a little less chaotic was if I named what we were going to do, even the boring things, as a "big moment". For example, "Now it's time for the big bath moment, the big reading moment, the big cleaning your room moment" and so on. In these "big moments" we were a little more present and when we named what we were going to do it could even be fun to sort socks. Yay, we are having a "big sorting socks moment".

All material produced by Growing Listening Minds is inspired by my life as a mother, as well as my education and experience as a researcher and lecturer.
