(Love these sweet little Valentines of mine...and yes, that is a vintage NCState sweater Charlie is wearing passed down from his Pops, to his daddy, and now to him!)
3 ways to make your child feel loved:
1. Listen to them.
If it's important to them, it should be important to you. No matter how big or small the issue/problem/situation is, let them know that you care about what they're going through.
2. Don't tell their secrets.
(or even day to day things they share with just you.)
Serious or funny. Big or small. This is how trust is formed and maintained, I'm sure of it.
3. Give them opportunities to succeed.
Introduce them to new things, (classes, books, performances, ideas), so they can excel in a certain (or several) areas. Support their interests and do everything in your power to help them succeed.
Of course, these are just 3 of the many, many ways you can make your child feel loved (at any age).
How did your parents make you feel loved growing up? What is something that you do to show love towards your children?
Happy Valentine's Day, my friends. I hope you're able to spend it with someone you love.
