One important question to ask your kiddos today!

STONYFIELD, YOGURT, FAMILY

Just recently I learned of a great article on babble.com to where the question “How can I help you feel loved?” was asked to their child. I know we all love our children and tell them we love them but do they always feel loved I wonder? The words I love you of course are just words and I have always felt that actions speak louder than words in all areas of life.

Knowing that I wanted to ask my kiddos the same question I mentally prepared myself. I prepared myself because I wasn’t sure exactly how they felt about that subject and how they would answer because the question had never been asked before.

So today I did it. I asked my 4 older kiddos the question “How can I make you feel more loved?”

My oldest daughter answered with spend more time with her and more 1 on 1 time.

My oldest son answered with by taking him to a theme park and family get-togethers. My other son answered with by spending quality time together.

My youngest daughter always loves to write and draw so I asked her the question by writing the question on a piece of paper. She answered with Hugs & Kisses.

FAMILY

So today I learned that my kiddos really want more time spent with them and more hug and kisses. It was kind of hard to hear that my kiddos feel I don’t have enough time for them but I can see that though. We are a large family and things do get very busy for everyone. Now that I know ways to make them feel even more loved I can work on making that happen with more quality time and lots and lots of hugs and kisses.

If you were to ask your kiddo the same question today, what do you think they will say?

    That is so sweet! My son would probably say something about having more time to play games with him. 🙂

  • Claudia Krusch

    I don’t know! Such a deep and interesting question, I will ask my son tomorrow! Thank you for your beautiful post!

  • Krystal

    We really like their yogurt and products! I actually was able to sample a few flavors at a conference.

  • Shanéy Maharaj

    I always wondered this too and I realized the same. My daughter just wants me to spend more time with her and play games together.

  • CourtneyLynne

    We just love stonyfield!!! It’s my three year old daughters favorite yogurt! Plus I love that it’s organic.

  • Kiwi

    What a sweet answer to a sweet question! This should be asked often!

  • Kathy

    This is wonderful! I’m going to ask my girls this today and see what they say. I’m sure they’ll say hugs and kisses as well.

  • Ann Bacciaglia

    This is a great question we nee dot be asking our kids. I will have to share this with my friends with little ones.

  • Shannon Gurnee

    I am going to ask our kids this question this week. I wonder what they will say? Maybe it will be different than what I would think they’d say?

  • Ashleigh

    I think it’s a great question to ask my children when they are older. It’s always important to listen to their needs.

  • Lynndee

    Aww, that is just the sweetest. I’ve never thought of asking my son anything until today. Thanks for the idea. I can’t wait to read his answer. 🙂

  • Liz Mays

    I think it’s sweet that you asked them that. My kids are young adults, but you know what? I’m going to ask them anyway!

  • Maggie Branch

    Love this! It’s so important to love our children the way that they need to be loved. Asking them is the first step.

  • Chubskulit Rose

    This is a clever idea. My kids are very vocal of their feelings so they always let me know how they feel of certain things.

  • Annemarie LeBlanc

    I think if I would ask my kids that question, they’d answer with “cook my favorite dish!” My kids are my greatest fans when it comes to cooking. 🙂

  • ricci

    These are great answers to your questions! Sometimes all someone needs is a hug!

  • Chrystal | Nevermore Lane

    Aww. That is the best thing I have seen all day. I just love this. Hugs and kisses are the best thing ever. Best gift and they are free. Never run out either.

  • Travel Blogger

    Such a great question one that I would have never thought to ask. We have our own ideas about what love means, but kids have their own ideas too, and it is so important to listen.

  • Mimi “MimiCuteLips” Green

    Awww, that is really sweet. I’m afraid of what my kids would say. lol

  • Paula Schuck

    That is so touching. It’s so hard to get in all the time with our kids that we want, especially when we’re hustling to make that money. It’s an important thing to remember.

  • Diana Villa

    This is such a wonderful idea, I’m going to ask my little one and see how can I improve my self. Thanks you so much for the sweet post 😀

  • Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle

    OMG, that is so sweet. All parents should do this with their kids.

  • Jeanette

    Always good to ask your kids this question. How should understand the frame of mind and what they’re thinking.

  • Robin (Masshole Mommy)

    I am not sure how either of my boys would answer this, so you know I am totally going to ask them when they get home from school today 🙂
