Childhood is such a fleeting time in a person’s life. Mine wasn’t all that great and instead of being bitter about it I chose to give my kids what I didn’t get. I’m not referring to material things. All kids want is to be shown is love, affection affirmation and validation, consistently and unconditionally. Children ought not to have to perform to earn these. Give a child these and you would have won their heart, molded their soul and caused their spirit to awaken so they can go and be all they were created for. Have you hugged your kid(s) today and told them you love them no matter what?
