There are endless possible combinations of words that we can say to our children to express our love. In truth we can say that it is an art to show masters towards our children. Here are just some of the phrases that I think are the best that we can use in our home to strengthen family ties.

3. “You are very special.”
It is extremely important that children understand from a young age that they are different and that this makes them unique and special. Also, we all want to stand out in some way. Make it a goal to tell them every day that for you they are incomparable and the most special thing that has ever happened to you.

Sometimes we are so tired or tired that we are tempted to say phrases that harm our children. Remember that your children are a blessing, a miracle, a light in your life that illuminates every day, make them feel it and know it too. Every day.
