How many times do you tell your kids "I love you"?

I do it every night before bed, when we hang up on the phone, when I leave, when they are upset, when they are sick, when I am proud of them, after time-outs and for other times when there is no reason at all.

  • How many times would you like to hear it from the one you love? There is no set number so you can't go wrong.

  • I honestly dont know how many times I tell my son I love him. I tell him first thing in the morning, last thing at night, Before he gets on the school bus, as soon as he gets off the school bus..

    I tell him all the time. & never keep track.
