Love & Respect your Children
The Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم when he used to see Faatima رضي الله عنها he used to say, 'Faatima is part of me.' When she used to come and visit him he would be sitting, upon her entrance he ﷺ would get up and go to her, hold her hand, kiss her between the eyes and he would say, 'Faatima is my fragrance, I smell her' and he used to kiss her between the eyes, hug her and have her sit next to him.
Today some parents have a military camp attitude within their own household, very strict, no love and though they are close physically each member of the house is very far apart. Look at the way of our beloved Prophet صلى الله عليه وسلم, how he greeted his daughter, made her feel welcome, was affectionate towards her, gave her attention, these are all ways of building a bond with your children and running a successful household.
