Leaving a surprise, such as lunch notes for our kids, is one way that we can strengthen our relationship with our children.
Being a kid is hard.
As an adult looking back, we know that the kids of today’s generation have things really easy. They have technology at their fingertips, amazing medical advancements, air conditioning, and so much more.
But, thinking from their perspective (since this is their first time being a kid), there is so much pressure for them to fit in, wear the “cool” clothes, own the latest technology, and even participate in activities that they wouldn’t otherwise just to “fit in.”
So, how do we help our children stay focused on their school work, strengthen their resolve to make good, moral choices, and help build their confidence as they grow into adulthood? In short, how do you change your child’s life?
That is what we are going to be discussing today, and how creating lunch notes for kids is one way to serve your children.

3 Incredible Ways Lunch Notes Will Change Your Child’s Life
1. Just Love Them
“You may have tangible wealth untold; caskets of jewels and coffers of gold. Richer than I you can never be. I had a mother who read to me.” – Strickland Gillian.
Love your children for who they are and what they can accomplish now, and in the future.
When a child, whether they’re starting kindergarten or in their senior year of high school, knows they’re loved, there is something that happens in their heart.
They don’t have to pretend to be something they’re not, they don’t have the worries of social pressure weighing down on them brought on by their friends and peers, and they are firm in their resolve to keep your family’s rules because they know that mom and dad care.
But, here is something you need to understand. You cannot love them conditionally but you must love them unconditionally.
Because there will be times when your children break your heart, they will make poor choices, and you’ll often shake your head and wonder what they were thinking.
But if your love for them never changes and remains a constant star, then when the time comes that they’re ready to “come home” then they’ll be more willing to do so because you loved them first.
Expressing your love, verbally and in written form (such as a lunch note) is one way to remind them of your love for them.
Another reminder you want to give them is one of their worth.
2. Remind Them of Their Worth
“The most powerful Being in the universe is the Father of your spirit. He knows you. He loves you with a perfect love…He wants you to know that you matter to Him.” – Dieter F. Uchtdorf.
Take the time to remind them of their eternal worth and value. Share with them the love God has for them and their eternal potential as His child.
Also, remind them of their invaluable place as a member of your family.
Your child, although they may have been the cause of many gray hairs, cannot be replaced. They might be stubborn, relentless, and sometimes you might feel hopeless. But never stop praying for and loving them.
Because there will come a time when they will need you and your love more than you know.
3. Be Their Mentor & Friend
Take the time to share with them practical life tips. As parents, we want to be their friend, and I agree, friendship is a key part of having a great relationship with your child.
But be a friend second and a mentor first.
Be the one who safely and lovingly shows them how life works, their unimaginable and eternal role as they work hard, and help guide them through their fun (but crazy) teenage years.
Kids need to be reminded that they’re loved, valued, and appreciated. They also need a mentor who will help show them how to fulfill their roles as adults.
