Fun Valentine’s Day Activities For Your Entire Family
1. Communicate love with your words this Valentine’s Day
Here are some simple ways we can show love to our families.
- No Complaints – Use the 24hr period of Valentines Day to ban complaints. Parents included!
- Be the first to apologize – If you have done something hurtful or inconsiderate take this time to apologize. As a parent, it is often hard to admit when we are wrong, and yet, apologizing can bring you closer together!
- Tell a love story – Tell the kids one of the reasons that you fell in love with their mom or dad (even if you are separated from your child’s other parent, this is good for your kid to hear).
- Share the love – Tell your family members that you love them. It is amazing how important those words are!
