Words of affirmation – Kids don’t have to have achieved something measurable, like a grade in school or a winning game, to deserve words of praise and love. Tell them that you love them often.
Quality time – Do something new and out-of-the-ordinary with your child, start a new Valentine’s Day (or just Tuesday) tradition where you spend meaningful together. Pick an activity that you child particularly likes.
Receiving gifts – This is easy. All kids enjoy small surprise gifts. Simple things such as a sugar free lollipop, or stickers!!
Act of service – Helping with homework, teaching them a new skill, driving them to a play date or even reading to your kids all show love and caring through actions.
Physical touch – Hugs! Lots and lots of hugs and kisses.
