"Taisetsu ni suru ne" means "I will take good care of you/I value you a lot."

It does sound a bit patronizing, I admit.

''Taisetsu ni suru'' sounds like ''cherish'' for me, a Japanese.

It can either be a typical patronizing comment or a typical word of commitment (such as marriage proposal) depending on the situation. Either way, he is saying you are precious to him.

To Reina Jess,
It sounds out of place to your kids, because of course you would *already* be "cherishing" and "taking care of" your kids lol.

taisetsu yo 2010/7/4 15:51
Reina Jess,

AK is right. Usually parents say "Taisetsu (da)yo." to their children. This is almost like the Japanese version of "I love you."
