Every child, whether a teen, pre-teen, or adult, yearns at some level to hear their parents say “I Love You” or “I am proud of you”…

Today, tell someone you love them and another that you are proud of them.  Give them one specific thing that you love them for instead of just saying ‘I love you’ or ‘I’m proud of you’.  Being specific makes the acknowledgment stronger, easier to hear and receive, and helps the recipient understand what they are doing or who they are being makes a difference.

Doing the very act you are wishing for in your own life will attract it to you much faster than sulking and waiting to be acknowledged.  It feels really good and is fulfilling to give the gift of acknowledgment, better than being the recipient of it.
