Showing Your Child Unconditional Love

showing your child unconditional love

Unconditional love is when you love your child without any conditions. It is important to understand that love is something you do for someone else, it is not selfish, and it is not something you do for you. By loving your child, you are trying to increase their happiness, you are trying to show them how much you care about them, and you are trying to show them how valuable you know they are. By loving your child, you are showing them that you will be there, when their behaviour is good and when their behaviour is bad.

I love you no matter what you do.

This is what unconditional love is all about. “I accept you for who you are” is another way to show your child unconditional love. A child raised receiving unconditional love is more likely to grow up without emotional reserves, will feel accepted, will understand that loving should be loving the person and not necessarily their actions, and most importantly will generally feel secure in their friendships and romantic relationships. A child raised without receiving unconditional love may grow up feeling that people might leave them, feeling that their actions may cause others to stop loving them, feeling that they are alone, leaving people before they leave them, and may find it very difficult to trust others.

We loved our child unconditionally. Our child has grown up to be a confident and loving man. – anonymous

For love, we will climb mountains, cross seas, traverse desert sands, and endure untold hardships. Without love, mountains become unclimbable, seas uncrossable, deserts unbearable, and hardships our lot in life. – Gary Chapman

We set so many rules for our child, and were not always showing them love. I feel my youngest daughter is now finding it very difficult to make and secure friendships. -anonymous

Love is something you do for someone else, not something you do for yourself. – Gary Chapman
