This day is centred around spending time with children in their communities and connecting with them. The idea behind Te Ra Nga Tamariki is that you cannot spoil a child with too much aroha. Showing warmth and affection builds trust and a positive self-esteem, and a loving whanau with whom they feel safe will provide a supportive environment for their tamariki in which they can grow and flourish.
