Happy Valentine’s Eve!

Number 10 was copied wrong in OP blurb: in the post it actually says: “treat children as people, not objects” of course. Thanks, Reddy, for pointing that out!!!

“Of all things, love is the most potent.” – Dr. Maria Montessori

There are so many ways that we can display our love and affection for our children, not just on Valentine’s Day, but year-round! In my experience, non-material gifts, such as simple hugs and saying “I love you” go much further than a store-bought gift.

Here are 10 ways that you can show your children you love them:


  1. Spend time with them
  2. Commit to family rituals
  3. Don’t hold grudges
  4. Share yourself with your children
  5. Encourage them often
  6. Tell them “I love you”, give them hugs & kisses every day
  7. Don’t multitask – listen
  8. Say “YES”
  9. Be at the crossroads – be their cheerleader
  10. See your children as objects, not people


Happiest of Valentine’s Days! ♥
