As it is valentines day tomorrow I wanted to write about teaching children about Love.
I think you can do it by the simple things like giving your child a cuddle and a kiss, letting them have the things they love but in moderation of course.
I want my son to be respectful to others and be kind, and he is already started to do that. Apparently there is a little who he goes to school with, who cries all the time when she has to go to school, and our son gives her a hug all the time.
The one thing my son is, is very affectionate which I think it is a lovely trait to have.
I don’t think showing you love someone should happen just on valentines day, but through out your life with that person, even if it is giving them a hung, cooking them dinner, buying a gift, just showing that you care is a good way to teach love to our children, and it should be embraced.
I know there are people who don’t agree with kissing your children, and that is up to them, but I don’t see what is wrong with it, as long you don’t have a cold sore or are sick, then giving a kis is a nice to way to show love.
Same with a hug. I love having cuddles with my son, whilst watching TV or a film, it’s what helps us to bond as mother and son, and that to me is important.
Many thanks for reading,
