The first part of the letter lets them know that you love them unconditionally. It is essential to make sure that your child knows that you love him no matter what choices he makes or what accomplishments he achieves. You can say something as simple as, "I love you no matter what."

The second part of the letter addresses why you are proud of him. Acknowledging his unique talents and abilities, or the personality traits that set him apart, are a few things to consider praising. If there is a specific instance you wish to address, make reference to it, including what it is about that instance that makes you proud.

The last part of the letter is the best time to acknowledge your own shortcomings and apologize for any wrongs you may have done, if it is applicable. Next, share what you love about your relationship and what you hope the future holds for the two of you. Give specifics about what is important to you in your relationship with them. Stay positive and honest, but do not criticize your child.
