Parenting, Children and Teens
Every child (and adult) needs to be reminded often that people love and value him or her. Often we get busy and forget to send messages of love to our children. Or we send messages poorly. Or we send only angry messages.
Sometimes we send a message of love, but the child does not get it. It is as though we are talking different languages. There are at least three “languages” of love: showing, telling, and touching.
