Show your children you love them, always

Don’t just spend the fun times with your kids and then withdraw as soon as things get serious – love means sharing the tough times too.

  • Be with them at crisis times, eg. when they are sick – don’t always leave it to their mother to take them to the doctor
  • It is especially important to not withdraw showing appropriate physical affection when daughters go through adolescence
