We tend to worry about things that mean little. Children will most likely not remember every detail of the home environment or our beautiful garden, whether the refrigerator was filled with products of famous brands or the most common ones. Let’s focus on what’s important.
1. THE TIMES YOU MADE THEM FEEL SAFE
Every child is vulnerable and needs protection. Your children will remember those evenings when you were driving helped to survive nightmares. But in the same way will remember the moment when the monster woke up in you and frightened them out of jest. Of course, sooner or later the children will have to see us angry, furious, because this is also a part of life. Try to make sure that children close to you always feel safe.
2. TIME, WHEN YOUR ATTENTION HAS BEEN UNINTERRELENTLY BELONGING TO THEM
Children measure love primarily by attention to them. Moments, when you left all the business to drink tea together, go out into the street to play ball or jump on the trampoline, they will remember it. Try to find time for such trifles, because in the long run it is these minutes spent together that will be the most significant for children.
3. YOUR COMMUNITY STYLE WITH HUSBAND OR WIFE
Children form the idea of love, for the most part, watching how parents communicate with each other, relate to each other. Strive for such an alliance that will awaken in them the desire to someday marry or get married. Give a sense of security, which is felt by a person watching the tender and respectful relationship of the father and mother.

4. YOUR WORDS OF APPROVAL AND CRITICAL COMMENTS
Identity and self-esteem of children, their idea of their potential are largely based on the words that you tell them in the early years of life. Yes, part of our work as parents is to adjust the behavior of the child and to teach him discipline, but even at these times do not forget about the positive reinforcement. Let your words be full of love and support.
5. FAMILY TRADITIONS

Children love spontaneity, but they almost aspire to predictable events. They will remember with great warmth all those traditions that you lay down, whether it’s weekly watching movies or playing games in the evenings, or a place where you year after year go to the whole family to rest, celebrate birthdays or any other significant events.
Make an effort to come up with and maintain such rituals. Perhaps, then your children will want to transfer them to their family.
