How to love children

Encouragement for parents

The way we talk to our kids becomes their inner voice.

One of the best ways to boost children’s self-worth is to listen like they matter. Because they do. When your children decide to talk to you and share their problems, stop everything and listen to them. There is nothing more important than that.

If your child asks for a cuddle during your household chores, don’t say “later”. Your chores can wait. A cuddle only takes a few short minutes, but a child’s memory will keep forever. Children need hugs more than they need things. When you are hugging a child, always be the last one to let go. You never know how long they need it.

Too much love never spoils children. Children become spoiled when we substitute presents for presence. Good parenting does not mean giving your child a perfect life. It means teaching them how to lead a good and happy life in our imperfect world.
