I LOVE YOU BECAUSE…




Every once in a while I like to play a game with my kids called I Love You Because.. just to fill up their love bank and let them know how special they are to me. My youngest son loves for me to do this with him to song at night time (each time he wants different words though which can be very hard). My daughter loves to play this game with me and we go back and forth. Its a really great way to see what my kids are feeling and maybe do some self evaluation, especially if they have a difficult time coming up with words, which when you have teens can sometimes be the case!!

Since I just started reading the 5 Love Languages of Children by Gary Chapman and Ross Campbell, I thought this week would be a good time to fill up my daughters love bank and see where she was at with me. 

Here is what we came up with. The first one is what I told her and the 2nd one is what she told me.
