10 Ways to Show Your Kids That You Love Them
“Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” – Elizabeth Stone
Just like everyone, even kids needs the reassurance that you love and care for them. They just need a reminder in their daily life. They expect from you a gesture of love to show them how special and loved they are. Here are a few ways to show your love to your kids.
1. Listen to them
Let them talk about their life. Listen carefully when they tell you things about their school/college life or about their friends. Do not interrupt or get distracted while they are talking; they’ll notice your disinterest. Do not do other chores while they are talking to you.
2. Spend Time
Spend some time alone with your children every day. You can take them for a walk or to play games. Let them know you have time for them.
3. Acknowledge them
Celebrate their everyday achievements, compliment them and tell them that they did a good job and that you are proud of them.
4. Know them
Get to know their schedules and about their friends. No matter how busy you are, know about their daily activities.
5. Stop pestering them
Talk to your children but do not force them to share each and every detail. Let them know that you are there if they need you.
