Mahnaaz Sheikh: While some parents have adopted technology as their babysitter, overall I still feel parents are a bit more receptive to their children’s emotional needs. It’s because of education, awareness and knowledge.

@malikaxotwod: Growing up not loving or valuing yourself can literally affect the rest of your life. I have to pour love into my future children, it’s imperative that they know their worth at a young age.

@SounguiFitness: We must teach our children the importance of being loving and be that example for them.

@HFHarvard: #TheHumanFlourishingProgram at #Harvard is revealing a new study that shows a strong connection between higher parental warmth in childhood and greater flourishing in mid-life.

@BethFratesMD: We struggle when our children are younger because we want to do the ‘right’ thing. Turns out being warm and loving may be the most important thing to do....

@RogerStark7: Studies show that children do best when they have at least three loving and supportive adult influences in their lives. #NationalChildrensDay.
