Parents may find it difficult to give each children the one-to-one attention that they need if they have a large family. This technique reassures the child that she's always in their heart even when she isn't the focus of their attention.
- Cut large paper hearts out of colored construction paper.
- Now write a loving message specific to each of your children on each heart.
- Hand out all the hearts when you're all together - for example, at Dinnertime - so your kids can all share with each other the special messages you wrote.
