Love needs to be shown

“I’ve always been really affectionate with the kids. In fact I still hug my son when he goes out and he is 17 years old and a big basketballer. Mark has never been inhibited about giving me a kiss when he goes out, even in front of his mates. I really love that and I think it’s really important.” – Dennis Cometti, football commentator

  • When you start showing your children affection at a young age it becomes the norm. For them and for you!
  • Showing your child affection builds their confidence in your relationship and teaches them how to be loving toward others.
