In addition, as parents, we certainly want the children we love so much to have the same feelings for us as we love them so much. However, children, especially babies, cannot express their feelings and affection in words.
So, when this happens, has you ever thought about a feeling where you feel that your little one doesn’t love you as a parent? Or is it because your little one’s attitude is often fussy at inappropriate times, such as when you are tired, dizzy or even stressed, make you doubt their love for you? And have you ever wanted to know the love of your baby, even though they can’t express it in words? Don’t worry or worry, even though the baby’s behavior often shows annoyance or fuss when you are under stress. But this doesn’t mean they don’t love you.
As a child, their love for you is of course great, you could say the love they have is only devoted to you. However, they just can’t show it yet and express it with the right expression. To prove this you can see when your little one is left behind or when they get out of bed and don’t find you next to you, they will immediately cry. This is proof that they love you and only you they want.
For that, never doubt the amount of affection and love they have for us. So, so that you can find out the form of love and love of the baby towards us, here are some ways that children can express their love for their parents.
1. For Newborns
Many mothers admire and fall in love with new born babies, especially the children they have just born into the world. This, of course, is a manifestation of their great love for the child that they are painstakingly giving birth to. However, besides that, not a few parents think whether the love that is given to their children is as great as the feelings that the baby will feel for you.
Of course, new born babies are not equipped with the ability to communicate, express what they feel and there are many more that they have not mastered. For this reason, to find out this, you can identify some of the ways that your baby does in order to show his love for you.
Newborn babies express your love and need with a single eye. This is certainly not done easily, it takes hard work for the baby to memorize your face and stature. They don’t really understand about the world around them, but they know that you (in this case are the mother) are very important to him.
For that, love and love your baby unconditionally, even though an expression of love that is done by the baby is a simple way, it takes hard work for them to be able to do this.
2. For Infants Aged 8-12 Months
Babies at this age will start to respond when you are away from them. Suppose when you leave them even if it’s only a few moments and the distance is so close, the child will show a disgusted and annoyed facial expression when looking around them. As a result, when they realize that you are not there, the child will immediately cry or even throw tantrums if you do not come soon.
Even when other people who are still related to the family with the child, try to persuade him. They will still refuse and only want you alone. From here, of course it is clear, that your baby will only feel safe when with you and his love is of course poured out only for you.
3. For children under five
Unlike children in the two previous ages, children under five have started to have the ability to think. Usually, children under five will experience tantrums where in this condition their anger will explode and the tantrum can really make you dizzy. They will also tend to often get angry and sulk and say “I hate mom” or similar words to this. However, there’s no need to worry, these words are only expressed as a form of his annoyance. In addition, the emotions that explode in your little one are only temporary, in a few moments he will return to befriend his parents. Even though the words that are spoken sound like hate, but in his heart, he still loves you and needs you.
4. When Toddlers Express “I Love Mother”
You may often hear your baby say “I love mom”, it’s just that in the delivery of this sentence you often find them not interpreting it well, such as shouting, stating out loud or even shouting this word as a joke.
Children at this age may still not understand the meaning of the expression of love, including the expression to you, so it’s no wonder that this will not be taken seriously. But don’t think too deeply, as time goes by and with age, the child will begin to understand and understand what they are saying.
5. For Children Entering School Age
Usually children who enter school age will get guidance from their teacher at school on how to love, cherish and respect their parents. In addition, they will also receive education on how to love their parents and show their love for their parents. For that, don’t be surprised if your child will give you a flower or a greeting card in which the words love us come. Although this has only been learned by them and only recently discovered by them, their efforts in doing this are a form of real love for us. Which of course we have to appreciate.
6. For Preschool Age Children
Now, for children of this age, the way the baby expresses his affection will start to be more organized and memorable. They are more likely to want to showcase their abilities and talents that will impress you. As if they wanted to say, “Look at me, mom!”. Trust me, this is a sign of his love for you, because he wants to make you feel proud of him.
7. For Older Children
Unlike the age at which they were children, children who have reached an older age such as adolescents will tend to be shy and prefer to keep their affections a secret. At this age, children will tend to show it with actions such as making you proud of them rather than just spit out words of love. In addition, teenagers are more likely to keep many things secret, including their failures and mistakes. This of course they solely do so that your proud feelings towards them are not destroyed. Well, from here, of course, it is clear that the love of children is so great that they don’t want to disappoint you.
Sometimes parents feel confused to know whether the child they are raising has great love for their father and mother. For this reason, knowing several ways children express love to their parents is expected to be able to answer your curiosity.
