It was late, I had wished the kids good night and was starting to peacefully fall asleep, when my intuition startled me.
I had to say one last thing to the children.
I sleep on the living room sofa next to their bedroom so it is easy to communicate from one bed to the other.
I asked them if they were still aware that I love them for ever, in the same way when they do mistakes and when they behave well.
The next morning I could feel my son feel lighter.
I am deeply convinced that children really do the very best they can.
Sometimes kids have a hard time putting themselves in a box like school and society want them to.
I feel in my heart how these reminders of unconditional love are important, even with children of 8 and 11 years old.
