Be creative in how you tell your children you love them

Tell your kids – all of them, no matter how old they are – that you love them, often.

  • Don’t use empty, repetitive words – think of different ways to tell them you love them. ‘You are more precious than diamonds’ or other creative ways can help them hear your love.
  • Be sincere.
