Show them you love them

Peter Rowsthorn in this video clip discusses the vital importance of showing your kids via your actions that you love them. It is important to be said, but even more so to be shown through actions, such as, giving them a hug, writing them a surprise warming note of love in their lunchbox, sending them a text, going to one of their sporting events and so on. There are many daily opportunities to show your children you love for them, when they come up, use them to shower your kids with the love they deserve.
