Starting February 1st Let’s Put A Heart on Our Kid’s Door to Tell Them All The Things That We Appreciate and Love About Them!
It’s that time of year again!! Our Valentine’s Challenge starts on February 1st; however, you can jump in at any time because we make it soooooo easy for you to do! This is the time when we take the opportunity to let our kids know how much we love and appreciate them (and remind ourselves as well because it’s easy to lose sight sometimes when you have a snarky teen!).
We have been doing this for the last several years, and we have LOVED hearing the testimonials from the moms and the difference it made in their relationships, building their kids up, and bringing more positivity into their homes!
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 kid’s lives that bring life.
So this month and leading up to Valentine’s Day, 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 14 hearts and write an affirmation or message of love on each heart.
Every morning from February 1st to February 14th, stick one of those hearts somewhere your child is sure to see it.
Here’s some inspiration from all the emails that came in!
Let’s remind our kids and ourselves how much they mean to us!
Sign up here, and we would love to send you some printable ready-to-cut-out hearts and some affirmations to help the ball start rolling, and reminders to get those hearts done!
