Love Is the Key
A recent study of maladjusted high schoolers shows how important it is to tell our children we love them. After the counselors had worked long enough to gain rapport with ten of the most maladjusted students, they asked them how long it had been since their parents had told them they loved them.
Not a single one could remember having heard such a comment.
By contrast, ten of the best adjusted teens answered the question by saying, “This morning” or “Last night” or by indicating that they had been verbally re assured of their parents’ love within the last few hours.
