3 Valentines Day Lessons My Kids Taught Me

Happy V-Day, mom!
Surprisingly, children understand love better than their parents.

Typically, when you hurt the people you love, they're not so quick to forgive. There are many families that hold grudges for years over some family feud. I've found that children are able to "let go" more easily when their feelings are hurt. It's as if forgiveness is second nature.

Children are resilient. The biggest tragedy could happen one day and by the next morning they've moved on. My wish is for you to do the same in your life, when it comes to forgiveness and moving on from life's challenges.

One on one interaction with your partner doing and sharing an activity or participating in a shared interest is spending quality time with that person.

Share this with someone you love (or even like a lot)!
