Do your children know you love them? I certainly hope my three children do. For starters, I want them to know today how blessed I feel to have them in my life, but I also don't want them to be in a counselor's office 20 years from now talking about how they never knew if their parents loved them.
As a counselor myself, I've certainly heard my share of those stories. Parents may have thought they were loving their children in a way that their kids felt it, but their children didn't necessarily grow up feeling loved.
You may have the same or different reasons, but I'm betting you're a lot like me—you want to be sure your children know just how much you love them.
My friend, mentor and co-author Dr. Gary Chapman is known worldwide for his five love languages concept. In fact, you've probably heard of his NY Times best-selling book by the same name. This concept has changed millions of relationships for the better because it equips people with an easily-understood, practically-applied way of expressing love in a way that your loved ones feel it best.
