Atención afectuoso y cariñoso
(amoroso, tierno) - these are all words you could use

disagree  xxxtazdog: it's English to Spanish, and in any case,the N.A. stands for "North American"

Tender loving care


Explanation:
so, Laura Molinari is the correct answerer. TLC is the shortcut for an add in the paper when someone wants to sell, for example an old restorable car or house. Then the seller writes, "seling car needing TLC"

TLC? ATC (Amor, Ternura y Cuidado)

This is to clear the issue. Please pick the first answerer, (Laura Molinary) She gave the correct answer first.
