Lately, I’ve been reading a lot about how mothers want their children to remember them. I’ve read a lot of answers people gave when asked: How did your parents show love? 

Of course, I then started to consider how I want Jock and Luke to remember me.  Not that I hadn’t thought of it before, but I actually wrote down my hopes for how I want my children to remember me when they leave my home.  Just writing them down has already set me on a more intentional path.

When you think of your mom what are the first things that come to your mind? Are there characteristics for you to emulate?

Have you thought of how you want your kids to remember you?  Our children aren’t as hard on us as we are on ourselves.  Children really do give us a lot of grace, and they bounce back pretty quickly from most incidents we wish we could have a do-over on.

For many mothers, they want their children to know they love them no matter what.  I decided to share 21 of the top ways kids feel loved. I want to remind that to love unconditionally is to not take any signs of love away because of the way someone acts.

 

 

20 Ways to Say I Love You to Your Child In this post, you will find an infographic that includes 21 of the top ways children like to be shown love. We want our children to remember us as loving, and we want them to feel loved.

 Footnote:

I want to mention 2 other ways people repeated throughout my research.

  1.  No matter the age, children enjoyed being tucked in, talked to at night, and read to.
  2. Children were very appreciative of the time their parents took to spend one-on-one time with them away from siblings.
