Ways To Express Your Love
Love is one of the essential principles that bind a family(family members) during thick and thin times. Living in love and harmony within a family directly translates to the success of the family. For instance, in a family setting where you get the parents lead in showcasing love and perseverance to their kids it directly translates to how the children grow because they make that principle of love part of their day to day living.If you embrace love in all your needs as a parent, then it will become easier to detect early parental mistakes that might come your way as well as come up with ways of overcoming such mistakes.
Parents fail to show the love of their family members by sometimes bringing conflicting emotions which create gaps in the family. To help you understand the importance of living and expressing your love to your family every day, I will give you a real short story that just happened recently. I have this friend who goes by the name of John. After dating his partner for two years, he decided to make it official and marry the love of her life. Taking this big decision meant that John had added some extra expenses to his budget, so he needed to work harder to have smooth sailing.
Father And Son
After one-year John and his lovely wife were blessed with a bouncing baby boy, and this brought happiness, but in John’s mind, it meant that his expenses had stretched further. The solution John sought was to work some extra hours every day to fulfill all the needs of his family. After a while, John became obsessed with his work to the extent that he forgot that his family needs his attention and love not only material support as his son grew up more expenses piled up, so John almost went missing for days in the quest to providing a good life for his family. As his son grew up, he engaged himself with bad company in school where they used to meet and smoke illegal drugs in secret. By the time John and his wife come to realize that their son was engaged in drug-taking, it was so late. One day John decided to hold a meeting with his son to know why he was engaging in such acts, but what his son expressed was shocking. The son directly told his father that he never dedicated his time to show him love or even have a sitting with him where they could discuss some of the thorny issues, he was experiencing so he sorts comfort from his friends. John broke into tears because all along, he thought that by dedicating all his time to work and providing his family with materials needs his family would stick together at all times.
This story serves a big lesson to all of us all to not only think of how to acquire material wealth but to incorporate love in all our actions every day, especially to our families.

Additionally, by spending time with children, parents also offer guidance, which helps them come up with withy ways of overcoming challenges and avoiding bad company in school.

The same way as parents you dedicated your time for their wellbeing, the children will also emulate your steps in the future when they get their own families.

Allow your children to participate in these games and from the games have a keen eye on where to correct them and offer them proper guidance.
