5 Things to Say to Your Child – Every Day!

Feb 20, 2017 08:07AM ● Published by Caitlin Marshall

It’s a given that most parents communicate with their school age children hundreds of times a day. From waking them up in the morning or talking to them about their day to correcting them when they get out of line, no day is the same. However, with each day, there is one routine exchange you should strive to have with your child—a positive one that will remind them how appreciated, admired, and loved they are.

Here are a few phrases and statements that child care professionals suggest we should try to say to our children every day, whether it is scattered throughout the day or said in one fell swoop before bed:

   - I love you

   - You make me happy / proud…

   - You are very special…

   - I like it when you / we…

   - I believe in you / I trust you…

Bonus Tip: 
Hug your kid(s) every day!

No matter how you tweak it to fit your relationship with your kids, communicating these positive thoughts to your children every day is something they'll remember you doing for the rest of their lives.

“My mom and dad gave their kids the greatest gift of all - the gift of unconditional love. They cared deeply about who we would be, and much less about what we would do.”  Mitt Romney
