Let’s Put An Autumn Leaf on Our Kid’s Door to Tell Them All The Things That We Appreciate and Love About Them!
We do so much for our kids on a daily basis that it’s easy to assume that our kids know how much we love them.
Yet, we often don’t realize how much we nag, lecture, and point out all the things that they’re forgetting, not doing, or what we believe needs improvement (because, as we know, there can be a lot!)
Without intending to, we can treat our kids more like “fixer-upper” projects than the unique, one-of-a-kind, amazing, miraculous beings that they are (even if they are snarky, sassy, and sloppy these days!).
Our kids need to know how much they matter. They desperately need us to notice what they are doing well and how much we appreciate them.
What we focus on grows. Focus on the positive, build them up, and you will find that just like watering a flower, it grows. We want to plant seeds in our kids’ lives that bring life.
So this month and leading up to Thanksgiving, we are going to provide you with ideas, inspiration, and tips that can help you to connect with your tween and teen’s heart.
We challenge you to cut out these leaves and write an affirmation or message of love on each one.
Every morning stick one of the leaves somewhere your child is sure to see it.
Let’s remind our kids and ourselves how much they mean to us!
