A simple tool for connection :)

Try writing small love notes to your children everyday!

You can put it in their school-bags, lunch-bags or pockets.  Or you can leave it on their bedside when they're asleep.  

What a wonderful discovery to find a love-note  from you :)

If they don't know how to read yet...  You can try drawing smiley faces, hearts, the sun or the moon...

Have fun!

I want to give you this short excerpt as a great tip :)

"Play is where children show us the inner feelings and experiences that they can't or won't talk about.....  Children don't say, 'I had a hard day at school today; can I talk to you about it?'  They say, 'Will you play with me?'..." Lawrence J. Cohen, 'Playful Parenting', Ballantine Books NY, Page 17
