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.
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?
