Valentine’s Day typically involves roses, chocolates, dining out and lots of romance. However, Kansas State University child development specialist Bradford Wiles says it can also be a time for kindness. He says Valentine’s Day celebrates love and kindness is a key component of love. Wiles discusses how parents can show kindness toward their children and themselves by spending the day together doing various activities. He says it doesn’t matter what type of activity is done or how it turns out. Spending time together helps build a connection and strengthens bonds.
