We love our adult children, but sometimes take it for granted that they know we still love and support them. They still want us to express our love and show it because it encourages them. We don’t always need to use words, as our actions speak loudly too. As they find their way in the world, they still have the same basic needs of every child that include being loved, affirmed, and accepted. They want the relationship to grow and mature and know you are proud of them. Our tone, word choices, and ways we encourage should change to reflect their status as adults. Here are ten ways to encourage them and show you love.
