The other day I was standing face to face with my wife in our kitchen. As I was gazing into her eyes I leaned over and gave her a kiss. Our daughter who I thought was watching television was actually watching us. She screamed with excitement, “kiss again, kiss again!” So we did and we received the same cheer again.
“It is good for children to see warmth and a bond between parents,” notes Margaret Helding, PhD., president of the Society for Family Psychology, a division of the American Psychological Association. “It is reassuring to children.”
So for you newlyweds out there, don’t let the honeymoon end after the first year. It is extremely important that we show love for one another especially when it comes to children. They learn first- hand how important a kiss can be, and how love should be respected. In today’s society we need to show more compassion regarding one another, and what better way than at home with your children. So pucker up kiss, and help teach what love is all about.
