For the brain dead, for those who need to practice for spontaneous moments, for those who just need one more little idea because the well has run dry, this little book is a nifty package of ideas on how to let a child know that he is loved.
I don't mock this book, 101 Ways to Tell Your Child 'I Love You' because it is pretty handy. (I put myself in the second category, those who need to practice spontaneity). Neither do I make fun who might find the book useful because we could all use a new idea occasionally. I suspect there are many people who don't need this advice on a day-to-day basis, though may occasionally just be stumped for a new idea, but for the rest of us, the book offers its promised 101 tips of sending an unmistakable message of love to a child (and could be adapted for grown-up children, I think.)
Aside from the good ideas, the major strength of this book is that it doesn't lecture but instead delivers ideas in very short doses, one or two sentences at the most, an idea per page, with easy-to-do suggestions. Some require a little more effort than others, such as preparing "coupons" for a hug or a kiss, but most are extremely easy to do, and require only a moment or two of time, and the desire to show love.
There is something for everyone here, mothers, fathers, aunts, uncles, grandparents, stay-at-homes or career parents, or anyone who wants to deliver the message to a child. Not every idea will be of interest to every person, but even a handful of them, tried occasionally or often, will help a child get the word.
Here are just a few:
See how many words you and your child can make from the letters I-L-O-V-E-Y-O-U.
Leave surprise love notes in unexpected places, such as the bathroom mirror or the front door.

The best thing a parent can do to insure an emotionally health child grows up to be an emotionally healthy adult is to consistently and continually express affection for that child in both word and deed. That's the basic premise for Vicki Lansky's "101 Ways To Tell Your Child "I Love You", a small volume ideas and encouragements ranging from waking up a child with a kiss, to cuddling with a child and a good book, to bringing home to a child a small token such as a flower. Enhanced with some 'fill in the blank' redeemable 'Love Coupons', "101 Ways To Tell Your Child "I Love You" is an ideal gift for a new parent and a welcome addition to any family with children of any age. Also highly recommended for parents are Vicki Lansky's previous titles including "Feed Me! I'm Yours", "Practical Parenting Tips For The First Five Years", "Toilet Training: A Practical Guide to Daytime And Nighttime Training", "Baby Proofing Basics", and "Games Babies Play".

I always enjoy any books written by Vicki Lansky, but I am just a bit perturbed that a tiny little book costs $8.95 plus tax....she does offer words of widsom in dealing with children, and she is a well-respected author of self-help books about helping children cope with divorce.

This book was recommended in another book for teens, but these ideas are either no-brainers or meant for much younger kids.
