The keys to feeling loved

If only it were that simple - four keys to feeling loved!  Yet that's the way children view their world.  Here's what they see:
  1. Respect - Children feel loved when their parents offer them guided choices and abide by their decision.
  2. Protection - Children feel loved when their parents provide a safe place in which to live.
  3. Security - Children feel loved when they have enough food, a warm house, and clean clothes.
  4. Importance - Children feel loved when their parents recognize their accomplishments, no matter how small or insignificant.  
Do your children feel loved?  They may not say they love you as much as you might want, but they feel loved if you use those four keys to unlock their heart.
