How many of us have actually uttered this phrase to our kids: "i love you". We rarely do. We are emotional beings- we laugh, cry, shout in anger and express our emotions and feelings in various ways. But when it comes to love and affection, are we really expressive? Do we show our love explicitly?
It may sound simple yet some parents feel awkard saying it. Well actually, it also deals with the issue of letting go of your ego. yes! Parents should not just understand kids' feelings but also 'feel' their feelings. Let's say a child is studying for exams. We know the child' potential and capability. There is no necessity to pressurize the kid by adding fuel to fire. All that the child wants to know from parents is the assurance that they will be supporting him/her no matter what happens. Support/encouragement/motivation can all be done in saying these three magical words -"i love you". Love your kids for who they are and not what they are going to be. After all, they are your kids, your blood, your angels!
