Kids Are Sharing How Their Parents Made Their Day In 88 Wholesome Posts

What made you feel loved as a kid? Think about it. Maybe you remember rollerblading with your parents on holiday? Being helped with homework? Or just telling them what you thought was a really big secret? There certainly is a time and place for big presents and gestures but very often, it is the small things that count.

Turns out, quite a few of them end up on the Internet, too. And we at Bored Panda did our best to collect them. Below you will find a wholesome series of posts where kids celebrate their parents’ signs of affection. Whether we’re talking baking cookies or 3D-printing a little anti-stress elephant, these moms and dads went the extra mile for their kids, and even if some of them weren’t executed to a tee, it’s the intention that matters.
