4 Love Actions

  1. Words – Don’t ever assume your children know that you love them. Be sure to say it and say it often.
  2. Time –  Spending time not money is one of the best ways we can show our kids that we love them.
  3. Availability – Be available to your kids, ready and willing to hang out together when they ask.
  4. Notes – Your children may not be overly excited about a handwritten note but know that your notes will impact their lives and always be remembered.

Listener Questions

  • Kevin from Facebook asks – “What advice do you have for a single dad raising a daughter?”
