Teaching your child to love — and feel loved — is one of the sweetest duties you'll ever have as a parent. If you're looking to sneak a heartfelt message to your school-going tot, take inspiration from these subtle, creative and unobtrusive ways to show your motherly love. He may still accuse you of having cooties, but you'll get the satisfaction of proving you think he's the greatest thing on earth.
I was going to find you some videos of hipster kids from Brooklyn, New York performing in their awesomely named bands, Toxic Muffin, Care Bears on Fire, and The Tiny Masters of Today. But after seeing them display premature (and studied) cynicism and cooler-than-thou attitudes, I decided on these kids workin' their way through "Message in a Bottle." Sorry, but they're way cuter!
People still do this?! A 12-year-old girl from Durham, N.C., put a message in a bottle with her contact information, including an email address. Some dude with a beard in England found it and contacted her one year later. (Don't get your panties in a bunch, Chris Hansen — this is not To Catch a Predator material. I know, I know; you're disappointed.)
