Rabbi Brad Hirschfield
Children need to know they are loved unconditionally. There is nothing they could do that would make us stop loving them. Even when we are really angry at our kids, even if we have to punish them, we remind them that we love them no matter what, and that we are upset with a particular action that they did, which is small compared to the love that we have for them.
