Love Love Love!

Showing & Sharing Family Love

 It’s Sad but True!
•  Some parents find it difficult to say I love you to their children
•  Some parents never felt loved by their parents
•  Some parents still long for their parent’s love
•  Some parents just believe their children feel loved
•  Some parents don’t teach their children how to love
 
Don’t take the power of love for granted. Filling your home with love is the basic foundation for all areas. It makes it easier to communicate, discipline and to build supportive lifelong relationships.
For myself, I turned my daughter in to a hug monster. You know the saying, be careful what you ask for (LOL). We often share group hugs and greet each other in the morning and evening with a kiss and a hug at the end of the work and school day. Sharing emoji’s and short text messages is also a great way for us to share our love as a family.
 

So be prepared to show, receive and share your love. Here’s a few other tips to add to your family traditions:

· Learn your child’s love language. What do they need to feel and show love?  
· Create a safe and supportive environment so your children will be comfortable with showing and sharing love.
· Find ways to spend time together regularly. Enjoy time spending time together in the same room.
· Laugh a lot! It’s easier to build loving relationships when you have fun together. Watch funny movies, share family stories and play games together.
 
Love is one of the most powerful words in the dictionary. No one can truly grasp or explain love to its truest and deepest meaning. The benefits of showing and sharing love in a family could positively impact the foundation for generations. Share with us how you plan to create a supportive and loving home?
