How often do you tell your children by words and actions that you love them?

To feel secure each child must have at least one significant person to love and to be loved by. Telling your children that you love them, especially when they are not anticipating such a comment and non-verbal signs such as pals, hugs, kisses and tousling hair are extremely important.

You need to realise that love is also communicated by the way you relate to your children in general-through your attitude of mutual respect and through hallowing them to develop responsibility and independence.
