Every interaction is either making a deposit or withdrawal into their love bank. Most parents would probably say something like “I will always love my kids, no matter what.” But the reality is that our affection and delight in our kids is very much based on our experiences with them.
Time. Love them with your calendar, not just words. Be at the meals, the sporting events, the activities, and do things together. If you are a busy person or you are a single parent, you will need to figure out how to make it happen. If you travel for a living this would mean some sacrifice, but you could take your family with you from time to time. You would make less money because of the travel expenses. But you will be with them and it will be worth every minute of it.
WAYS TO FILL THEIR LOVE BANK
Experiences. Have fun together. Go camping, hunting, or fishing together. Eat out together. Go on vacations together. Celebrate their birthdays.Do a lot of things together. This will build common experiences. Don’t try to live in a museum—create memories. Your house and the things in it shouldn’t be more important than the people who live there. A messy house may mean memories and experiences that will last forever.
When having fun together, be careful about how many friends you invite, because what will happen is everybody will end up hanging out with their friends and not with the family. Just make sure you keep that team tight. There is a time for friends, but there is a time for only the family.
Attitude. We are a tight unit as a family. The best story is written here because the people in this house are more for you than anybody on the planet. Let them know they are a blessing, not a burden they are special, and theyare loved.
Mission:A life on purpose. Get your kids in places, locally and abroad, where they honor, serve, or help someone older, widows, or less fortunate people so that they are able to realize not everybody has everything they and be more appreciative of all they have. Engage them to give to charity , mission Christmas or children in need.
Like it or not, you have a love bank with each of your kids. And your kids each have a love bank with you. Affection, fondness, and happy experiences together are like the grease that keeps the “machine” of family moving.
