The Sweet Hearts Technique

Posted on: February 24, 2010


If you’re often too busy to give your children as much attention as you’d like, use this  technique to spread the love!

If you have a large family you may find it difficult to give each of your children the one-to-one attention they need. This great technique reassures your child she’s always in your heart even when she isn’t the focus of your attention, but even parents with one or two kids can use it to spread that love.

 

Step 1: Sweet hearts!

Cut large paper hearts out of colored construction paper.

Step 2: Loving words

Now write a loving message specific to each of your children on each heart. Focus on the great things your kids had done throughout the day it helps show that you appreciate their good behavior even when they thought you’d been too busy to notice. If you work outside of the home or your child is in school, the message doesn’t have to be specific – you could write abut the fun you had at the weekend or mention something that happened in your day that made you think of your child.

Step 3: Sharing the caring…

Hand out the hearts when you’re all together – for example, at dinner time – so your kids can all share with each other the special messages you wrote. Alternately, you can hide the heart under your child’s pillow so she can drift off to sleep with your words of love to help her settle!
