This is what our children need these days, Words of Encouragement and Affirmation. Although we find it hard to portray since we didn’t have any experienced whatsoever but we need to show it to our kids to let them know that they are loved and cared for.
I find it awkward at first since our parents didn’t do it to us but we forced ourselves for the sake of our children. They needed our love, and attention because it is their basic need inside the family.
Our teenager is growing and he finds it awkward too when we hug or kissed him but we forced him and he will just smile.
