Important phrases to say to your children more often

I love you.
Parents can give their children too many material things: clothes, toys, books, and so on. But there is no such thing as “too much love. If we tell our children that we love them, and we do it as often as possible, they will feel that they truly care about us. The phrase “I love you” gives children the courage, confidence and support they need after mistakes are made. These three simple words can heal wounds and truly make them happy. This is how children feel that their parents are their fans in a good way. That Dad and Mom are there for them and truly love them.

Think about it: how do children learn to love themselves? It is through parental example. When we tell our children that we love them and back up our words with actions, we instill in them a love for themselves and others.

I’m Proud of You.
Children need absolute support and approval to develop healthy self-esteem. They desperately need it. Parents are the first people children want to impress. Virtually everything children do, they do to get our love and acceptance. Yes, many parents tell their children that they are proud of them, but it is the quantity, quality and sincerity of those words that matter. So is hugging, loving and being there for your children. We parents may not always agree with what our children do. However, we should praise them for completing the most difficult task of all-the journey to their independence.

I was wrong, I’m sorry, you were right.
We need to be open and confident enough to admit our wrongness to our children. This is how we show that we too are human and not perfect either. We should express sympathy for them if they have been hurt by our mistake. When we are sincere and humble with our children, we show that perfection is unattainable-neither for them nor for us. To admit our own imperfection, parents need to be honest. If we accept responsibility for our own transgression, we help children to have the courage to recognize and accept their own imperfection. By doing so, children learn to achieve balance instead of being perfectionists. Accepting responsibility for their mistakes creates an atmosphere of tolerance and openness. This atmosphere later becomes the foundation upon which our children learn to build all of their future relationships.
