Aww...why do you think they feel like that?

Quality sometimes beats quantity...not sure what your situation is...do you work? How old are the kids?

One idea that I see some people do...is to spend one on one time with each kid...like take time to go out with them and do an activity they like with them...bond and talk etc...

Depending on the age...have them involved with you while maybe making dinner etc...get them involved and talk a lot..

A hug and I love you works for me.  My daughter sometimes asks why daddy doesn't love her and when I ask her about it she feels that because he doen't take her with him all the time that he doesn't love her.  I take her to indoor play centers, Park (weather permitting), and hiking.  If I'm working he'll take her w/ him to look at cars he's buying, but no activites just for her.  The fact that your checking yourself speaks highly for you.  We can't give our kids EVERYTHIING they want when they want it.  Sometimes our kids grow up and thank us for setting boundaries and letting them know we love them, but we question ourselves while living the moment.

I hug and kiss and cuddle with mine. And I tell them all the time, literally all day, that I love them. And we play and act goofy. And I am just there for them :)

What is it that makes them feel you're not showing sufficient love? Do they want things and then when you say "no" do they say "Then you don't love me"?  If that's the case it isn't that you're not showing them sufficient love, it means they're spoiled brats.
