When’s the last time you said: “I love you Jasmine/ Steven/ Amy, or hugged your child for no particular reason?
Children need and thrive on regular doses of unconditional love.
What is Unconditional Love?
This is love expressed or shown, which isn’t related to a particular act or behaviour (like doing their homework, or picking up their toys) – it’s ‘just because’ love!
Ultimately we all want to know that we are loved, for who we are, not for what we do.
Many parents say that soon after the birth of their baby, they ‘get’ what love is really about. You love that child, just because they exist. You nurture and nourish that baby – you gaze lovingly into their eyes, and connect!
