To play along, start immediately.
Say Guess what – (child says what) then say I LOVE YOU to your child(ren) often with a big smile.
Note their responses, body language, etc on a piece of paper.
Do this throughout the morning/afternoon.
Record the age of your child and their responses to you below in the comment section.
Here’s what I found after playing this simple game:
Daughter Riley – Age 2 1/2
I love you too
Came over and gave me a big hug
Stop mommy – with a shy look but still smiling
You are my BEST FRIEND!
I have a surprise for you.
Son Carson – age 5 months
Kiss on mommy’s cheek
