Ya know…. I get a lot of comments about having a large family…
But the one that I am always puzzled about is this..
Loving more than one child is not the tricky part… it is showing them all in their own unique ways of receiving love and giving it as well.
Here are a few examples:
One of my children loves Quality time…
I will often find this child sitting amongst my husband and I when we are talking with others in the evenings,, and she also tends to choose family togetherness as her special pick when we are trying to decide what to do on a particular day.
She thrives with “just being” around us…
She loves to be all together, rather than everyone going their separate ways.
Another of my children loves gift -giving…
She will do extra chores to save out that money,,,
and buy special little gifts for everyone.
She will write little cards, and mail them,
and I will often find home-made notes of love to my husband and I on our pillows when we go to bed at night.
She is filled with JOY when we give her an extra special little token of appreciation or love.
I have a few children who thrive on the aspect of Physical touch and closeness..
Holding Hands while on a walk
A Thumbs-up of affirmation from across the room…
And plain ole; being held … even if they might be 12!
These are just a few examples of simple, yet profound ways of finding out HOW to connect and share the love with your children in a more EFFECTIVE way.
