Family Love

In this conversation about family this month we’ve talked about being well together and parenting.  Today we’re going to talk about an aspect of family that is really part of a bigger conversation-showing love.  What can you do to show the people in your family that you care?

1-do something before you’re asked.  You can take out the garbage, vacuum, pick up toys or balance the checkbook, just to name a few.

2-do something special because you know someone else likes it. Pick up a special treat, offer a back massage, or bring home a favorite book from the library just because.

3-do date nights. This applies to all ages, having special alone mom-kid/mom-dad/dad-kid time can mean the world to them.

4-be considerate.  If you know someone has a big test, interview or project, you can plan an easy meal, do some extra work around the house or just try not to be as “friendly” (aka annoying) as usual.

5-listen.  As easy and simple as it sounds, so many people don’t listen to others.  Taking the time to listen and then act accordingly (unless they tell you to jump off a bridge) will mean a lot to your family.

What do you do to show your family you love them?  Share your ideas below.
