Expert Answers

One of the greatest ways to show our parents that we love them is by asking them for advise. This shows them that we respect their thoughts. It also shows them that we think that they have made wise choices and have wisdom to share.

Also, a simple "thank you" is a great gesture. Parents sacrifice a great deal for their children while they are growing up. We can thank them for providing home cooked meals, placing bandages on our knees, and staying up through the night when we were sick.

And possibly the most important way we can express love to our parents is by simply spending time with them. As we get older we get busy with our own lives but forget about the people who truly matter.

It doesn't take too much to show love to parents - actions speak louder than words. A good start would be to always thank them for everything as you grow up, to show your appreciation for all the things they do for you -after all a lot of parents go without things for themselves to give a better future, education and life to their children. Next, there are opportunites throughlout the year for doing this - don't miss birthdays, mother's day, father's day, easter and christmas. These are all perfect opportunities for showing appreciation - and it doesn't have to cost a lot to show love in this way - a homemade card can express many deep sentiments and if it is decorated with care and thoughtful detail then it shows dedication - even if it isn't a work of art!
