Hugs are compulsory
In this family hugs are never left out.
My husband & I will never leave home without hugging & kissing our kids, Genene (11) & Jeriah (4).
I call home to tell my little boy that I love him at least 4-5 times in a day.
Genene gets little 'love notes' with her lunch to remind her that she is special & loved.
It doesn't stop there, My husband & I will never end a telephonic conversation without saying those special words, 'I LOVE YOU'
and it's not just a habit to say it, we say it with real feeling so the other knows how much we mean it.
We are an extremely affectionate family and not shy to express our emotions to the world. If we find the need or desire to hug our kids in the middle of a shopping mall, we do it!
I'd rather have my kids hear us say that we love them as often as possible, and experience our affection towards them, so that they don't go looking for love & attention in the 'world'
I love my family to bits and we are confident of our love for each other. Genjer's mom
