Valentine Tips for Parents

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day. Here are some Valentine tips and trivia you may not know:
  •    Approximately 1 billion Valentine cards are sent each year.
  •  Teachers receive the most Valentine cards, followed by children, mothers, wives and sweethearts.

Valentine Etiquette and Tips for Parents:
  • Since teachers receive the most Valentine’s cards, be sure the Valentine card your child gives to his or her teacher is appropriate and kind. 
  • It’s always best to have your child bring a Valentine card for every student in the class. Leaving someone out can be hurtful, especially for younger children. 
  • Talk with your child about the appropriate response when receiving a Valentine card. Kind words always work best.
  • Watch how many Valentine sweets your child eats, keep it to a minimum.
  • This is a great time to teach your children how to write a thank you note for any Valentine gifts they receive.

Valentine Quotes for Children:
  • “So often when we say “I love you” with a huge “I” and a small “you.” – Antony, Russian Orthodox Archbishop of England
  • “And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love they neighbor as thyself.” – Mathew 22:39
  • “The greatest healing therapy is friendship and love.” – Hubert Humphrey

Happy Valentine’s Day!
