Although Valentine’s Day has traditionally been all about romantic love since its mysterious creation in the 5th century, that outdated ideal is changing more and more each year. Life is crazy and time flies, so why not celebrate love in all its beautiful forms this Valentine’s Day? Beyond sending fun gifts to your family or celebrating Galentine’s day with the girls, why not bring your child in on the festivities as well? In fact, there’s plenty of reasons why you should include your child on this sweet and special day. Teachers and therapists have cited that including children on your Valentine’s Day celebrations can have several positive effects on their development, including teaching them the value of showing appreciation and loving affection as well as selflessness through gift-giving.
