I don't know about you, but when I was growing up, feelings (deep feelings) were never discussed.
There were things ( a lot of things) that I couldn't talk to my parents about.
It wasn't their fault, just how previous generations were brought up.
I have never told my parents that I love them and the only time my Mum has ever said it to me was the day
my daughter was born.
I knew I wanted mine and Imogen's relationship to be different, more open and I wanted her to be able to talk to me about anything ( and I mean anything).
I also want her to know everyday that she is loved.
I know my Mum and Dad love me and I want to tell them, just once, but don't know how to...
Anyway, this layout kind of comes from what I've just said - I love my sister but don't know how to tell her
If you're of my age, do you find you have the same problem, do you have a different relationship with your children?
Have you overcome the problem? If so, can you share?
