Love Blog – express love to your children with simple actions and words

Final countdown

August 25th, 2009

We’re officially counting down the days to Tell Your Child You Love Them Day! T – 7 days!

Use plenty of positive words with your child. Try to avoid using sarcasm with your child. They often don’t understand it, and if they do, it creates a negative interaction. Respond promptly and lovingly to your child’s physical and emotional needs and banish put-downs from your parenting vocabulary. Praise them for what they do well instead of criticizing what they struggle with; use “can” instead of “can’t,” “good job!” instead of “could have done better,” a pat on the back instead of rolling your eyes. They’ll feel encouraged and respected. 

What are some common phrases used today that could potentially send negative messages to a child?
