Compliments For Kids

29 Compliments Your Kids Need to Hear From You

Among the growing list of things that your kids need from you every day, both physically and emotionally, is to feel loved, valued, and special. Even though some parents are always oozing with compliments for their kiddos while others are worrying that they're praising their kids too much, children need to hear more from mom and dad than just, "I love you."
