How it makes you feel
What a joy it is to have them in your life
How much you love to watch them,
How much they simply warm your heart
2. Share stories of warmth and love with them
How much you wanted to have them
Funny things they've done that made you smile
3. Play Games with them
Have a games night once a week / month
Lay and watch them play cars / dolls - simply being there with them as they play
4. Read to them
This does not have to be only before bed.
Delight in the books that they choose.
Listen to them read too (If they're capable)
Talk about the stories and what you love about them.
5. Ask them (Show interest)
How was your day?
What was the best part of your day?
What makes you happy?
You'll be surprised, the answers to these last month won't necessarily be the same this month.
I've tried and tested these on my children and the smile on their faces when we talk about how much I love them is sensational. Better still they reach a point where they want to return the feelings, telling me how much they love me.
What have you done to love your child lately?
