The things I tell my daughter

Do you feel like a broken record as a parent? It’s hard not to. I say plenty of things I’m not proud of, and many things I hope my daughter forgets. There’s also plenty she misses when she chooses to ignore me.

But there are some things I tell my daughter often that I hope cuts through all the noise and that she always keeps in her heart.

Things such as:

I love you more than anything in this world. Don’t very forget it. Don’t ever doubt it.

I’ll be here when you need a hug.

We don’t intentionally hurt the people we love.

Use your words.

And finally,

Nobody loves you like I do.

What do you repeatedly tell your kids that you hope they hold close?
