Topic 2: Conclusion: Feeling understood

Since Europe is changing its traditional values on how children should be raised, it must be concluded that real research on children’s quality of life is only just beginning. So, as it seems essential for both teachers and parents not to avoid actively listen to children’s opinions particularly on topics concerning what is good and bad about their own lives, the present chapter is a useful toolkit for the development of essential psychosocial skills, such as empathizing with the feelings and affective listening of the perspectives of others, and offers the foundation for good communication, teamwork, and strong leadership for children matter what path they take, or what jobs they undertake, in the future (Castro et al., 2013; Kourmousi, et al., 2018; McNaughton et al., 2010, Thompson, 2018).
