Our little loves shouldn’t be left out this Valentine’s Day. You don’t have to go overboard for Valentine’s Day but the simple fact that you recognize that your child is not forgotten on such a special day will go a long way. Did your parents give you a Valentine gift? What was your favorite Valentine Gift as a child? Here are a few of our favorite Valentine gifts for kids!
I know that Valentine’s is often thought of for a husband and wife, boyfriend and girlfriend situation but don’t forget the little loves in your life… your children! Showing love to your child can be simple but significant. Remember, we are training our children at a very early age to express their love for their future mate. That is a big responsibility as parents! Showing your child by example is the best way to teach. They will be watching how you love YOUR mate, others around you, and even how you love THEM! So, do it well, mama!
When I asked my kids what they wanted for Christmas this year, they seemingly had no idea what to ask for other than the list probably every child/teen have. Why is that?! Once I started showing them some ideas “outside the box”, their list started evolving! So to answer my own question, kids often want what other kids have because they have heard them talk about it at school. If you want a genuine Christmas list, let them scroll through this post to see some hot toys that they may not have considered. My kids have tested out these products and give an A++ and agree that other children need to see them and add them to their Christmas wish lists! Let me tell you about these great gift ideas!

As parents, we often think about teaching our child to ride a bike or tie their shoes as being “big milestones”. Getting our children to improve their motor skills is often overlooked because most children learn some on their own. Unless the motor skills are worked on prior to “bike riding age”, your child may have a difficult time learning how to ride a bike. Motor skills are used in almost every aspect of life. How could you, as the parent, help your child with mastering motor skills at an early age?
