How do you talk to your Kids?

I'm pretty bad at this. Just ask my family, I'm known for my inability to communicate. They'll all vouch for me on this one. Haha. Needless to say, I want to be able to share stuff with my kids, especially my daughter. It really is a harsh world out there, and I want her to be able to tell me what's bothering her, which somedays seems like an inordinately large amount of stuff.

Well, I found something to help.


When I can't seem to get my message [of love, of frustration, of joy, or whatever] through, I can write it down. We're both good at that. She's always leaving me notes...

A normal mom would listen instead of staring at the STUPID computer!

That's a true story... Oops. I'm not perfect, but she does know I love her, most of the time. And that's the most important message of all. So, I've committed to at least one email a week, just to say I love you.

What do you do for your kids? I want to know!
With Love,
