The best gift a parent can give a child is unconditional love! Parents should put in overtime to make sure their children understand that the love they have for them comes freely and without boundaries. Constantly children need to know that it doesn’t matter “what they say, what they do, or what they look like”-(unknown), they’re loved! Children can feel if they are loved or even liked by their parents. It’s true that some have trouble showing affection but the answer is simply to try. Even if as the parent you can’t get your affection across like you want, that child still knows that you are trying, and that you are trying because you love him/her!
The worst thing a parent can do is make their child feel like their love comes with rules and limitations. For a child to only hear “I love you” or “I’m proud of you” when he or she is acting in harmony with the wants and desires of the parent is damaging. Each child has their own personality and their own dreams to live out. They are not a carbon copy of us. Every child needs to know that someone in their life loves them without limit. The best way to prevent a child from needing to bounce back from tragedy with health and wellness is to show love abundantly and without restraint.
