Just because your children are grown up doesn't mean that they don't need to know that you love them. Showing your adult children that you love them is just as important as showing them love when they are younger. Take the time to show your adult children just how much you still love them. It doesn't take much. Your adult children already have a great sense of how much you love them, but they still need to hear it every now and then.

Here are some tips on showing your adult children that you love them:


It is likely that your adult children don't live with you any longer. The easiest way to show your adult children that you love them is to call them every now and then just to talk to them about nothing at all. These types of conversations will keep you closer with your adult children. Your children will hang up the phone with a smile on their faces because you cared enough to let them know that you love them.

Care Package

If your adult child lives far away from home, send a care package every now and then. Put some homemade goodies in there that will bring back warm memories of a childhood gone by. This is sure to let your adult children know how much you love them. There is nothing like some homemade brownies to say "I love you".


Invite your adult children home for dinner once a week. This can be a set date and it will help keep the relationship on strong and level ground. Your adult children will love the get together. They will cherish it for the rest of their lives. This is a sure way to tell the adult children that you love them. If you don't want to cook, go out to dinner once a week with them. It all comes down to the same thing. Spending time with your adult children will make them feel loved no matter where that time is spent.


When you care enough to send the very best. Buying a card for your child and sending it to them for no apparent reason other than to say I love you is one of the best ways to show your love. Those cards will mean more to your adult child than you realize. It will remind them that they are special to you and that no one else can take their place.

These are just some of the ways that you can show love to your adult children. Just because you no longer tuck them into bed doesn't mean that you can't show affection. They still love to hear that you love them. You can't say it too much or too loudly.
