26 Super Easy Ways to Show Your Kids Love

      1. Make eye contact, even little kids can see what your thinking, how you feel through your eyes
      2. Let them jump on your bed
      3. Say wow and truly be amazed by a story they tell
      4. Give lots of hugs everyday
      5. Say I love you every night
      6. Say I love you every morning
      7. Turn off your phone, tablet, computer and give them your full attention
      8. Go for a walk and see the world through their eyes
      9. Hold up in their bedroom and play with their toys, be silly
      10. Teach your child deep breathing, it is a great skill that will come in handy now and in their adult lives when dealing with stress
      11. Don’t just give them everything they want, teach them the value of everything
      12. Don’t be afraid to say no
      13. Help them explore what they love and find their passion
      14. You can never spoil and child with too many cuddles
      15. Celebrate all achievements, no matter how insignificant they are to you, you’ll be building self-confidence in them for the future
      16. Don’t be afraid to get messy in the kitchen or with paintings
      17. Like Men in Black, wipe your memory everyday. Whatever craziness happened yesterday, forget it. Today is a new day, love your children through new eyes
      18. Remind them how lucky you feel to have them as your child
      19. Make your child laugh, the great thing is that you’ll feel great too
      20. Do what they want to do once in awhile
      21. Don’t ever let your child have to say your name to get get your attention more than 2 times
      22. Play board games, card games or puzzles
      23. When you play a game, let them win
      24. Frame their art work
      25. Keep their homework
      26. Dance together

Board games, though not always played by the rules are always fun

    This is a really sweet list, thanks for sharing! My son is still just a baby, but I make sure he feels loved by snuggling him, kissing him, and taking care of his daily needs. I also play with him.

    Great list! My kids are teens, so they aren’t into hugs and stuff like that, but they love when I do little things for them, like make them lunch
