I tell my son that I love him everyday. Many don’t feel the need to do that and would rather show it through their actions. Guess what? That’s perfectly fine. My Love languages are words of affirmation and physical touch. Therefore, I will let others know how I feel and expect the same back, to feel loved. I love to give hugs and cuddles, so of course I love that back lol. However, As a mother, I also realize that children, express their love differently and like to receive love differently.
As parents, I think it’s vital to recognize both love languages of our own and of our children. The last thing that we want is for them to feel as if that component was missing in their childhood. We need to discover the layers to our children and unlock the layers of ourselves.
How do you all feel about that?
Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!

I allow my son to lead in how he wants to express his love. He is 9 years old and I do see changes in how he handles it compared to just a few months ago. He used to want me to cuddle with him sometimes until he fell asleep but now he mostly wants a hug. Other times he just says “I love you” with no physical interaction. Some days he wont say “I love You” when his friends are around! LOL. We learn from them & I accept however he wants to show and express love with every moment.

Amen! I completely agree. Jr is very affectionate to me. He will come and climb up on me, stare in my eyes and give me two kisses. That’s his way of saying I love you Mama and I will always appreciate that.
