Here are some great ways parents can remind their children how special they really are:

  1. Take out your child’s baby book and look through it with him. Read him your entries and tell him stories about himself.
  2. Send your child something in the mail. You can make a funny card or buy one designed for children.
  3. Take your child out for a special one-on-one meal. Let him know how much you enjoy his company.
  4. Make your child’s hobbies a family affair. For example, if he loves soccor, take the whole family to a game.
  5. Let your child carry her own wallet or purse. Many stores sell small children’s wallets and purses. It can contain her library card, family photos and other items.
