As parents it is our job to show our children that we love them in a tangible way. While saying I love you is important – showing that we love our children is equally important. We make it a priority every day to show each child we love them through various ways guided by their individual love languages. It has actually become quite fun coming up with new ways to show our children (and one another) how much we love them every day. We created a list of things to help motivate you to say I love you to your children through your actions. While this is only a small list, we believe that each of these 5 suggestions is able to effectively communicate your love for your children.
5 Ways to Show Love to Your Children
