To love and nurture one’s child may seem like the obvious or natural thing to do.

However, there are many children who grow up feeling as though their parents don’t love them.

In fact, believing they are unloved is the No. 1 reason many teens give for attempting suicide, using drugs and alcohol, and running away.

On the other hand, such issues are almost non-existent in homes where parents consistently love and nurture their children.
