shel silverstein valentine's day quote for son

Valentine's Day is the day when red hearts, flowers and candies are given as an expression of how much you love someone — but this day isn't only for romantic relationships!

Valentine's Day is focused primarily on love. And when we think of love we often think of our romantic partners, but what about our mothers, fathers, children, and other family members?

Although it should not take one specific holiday to show or tell someone how much you love them, Valentine's day has a way of bringing out love in all its forms — and it's the perfect time to show your son just how much you love him too!

Many people dismiss Valentine's Day as a commercialized "Hallmark holiday," but it certainly has a way of making people smile, laugh, and feel excited. There's nothing better than making the ones you love happy simply by expressing your love for them over the course of the day.

Nothing is more important than a mother or father's love for their child. So go ahead and share all of that love in your heart with the little people who matter most to you — including your son!
