Despite the many sleepless nights, the endless diaper changes, and the struggles to get your kids to school on time–there is no greater joy than being a parent. No love on earth can measure up to parental love or the devotion a parent has for their children.

Defining Parental Love
This type of love pertains to the care, affection, and warmth children receive from their parents. Kisses, hugs, praises, compliments, and attention are just some ways parents express love and care.
