Expressing Love Daily

How can you make your kids feel special? Author Lisa Brock has developed a list of simple things that will help express our love to our kids every day.

For example, set aside blocks of time to play with your kids and put it on the calendar. Nothing thrills a child more than having their parent’s undivided attention. Another idea is to occasionally tuck little notes or gifts under your child’s pillow or into their backpack before school. Even the smallest gift or note can bring a smile to a child’s face.

Kids also love having regular traditions or rituals throughout the week, like going out for breakfast on Saturday morning, or spending a time as a family each Friday night. Anything that gives them something to look forward to with Mum and Dad.

The point is, kids love it when their parents make them feel special. And there are lots of simple ways to do it.
