Expressions of Love

Hits: 3237

An important ingredient for any healthy relationship is ensuring that both participants feel loved. To foster the best possible relationship with your teenager, you should make sure they know they are loved. In the rush of everyday life, we can often forget to remind our loved ones how much they mean to us. If we can just take a tiny portion of our day to convey this, our daily interactions will be much more meaningful, productive and fulfilling. 

Reminding your teenager that you love them can be as simple as telling them so each morning before leaving home, sending them a loving text during the day or stopping work for a moment to give them a hug. Love is a verb and if you actively love your teen, they will love you back. In time, this will lead to more respectful and pleasant interactions for the both of you.
