Definition specifically related to the family context
Observant parents pay special attention to their family environment and notice new elements. Bolstered by this skill, parents can identify details that will help them understand a situation or interpret various behaviours. The sense of observation will allow them to grasp another individual’s personality and adapt accordingly.
Among other things, the sense of observation reflects in parents’ awareness of changes that occur in their children from day to day. They identify, remember and interpret details that other people may not perceive. Observant parents remain abreast of what their children are doing, experiencing or witnessing, thus building a climate of trust and open communication.
