Valentine’s Day brings many unique challenges to parents, depending on how old their kids are. If you have elementary school-aged kids, you’ve probably had to go to the store and buy way too many Valentine’s Day cards for your kid’s classmates. It’s fun for the kids, but buying and assembling these cards can be a pain. If you’ve got some moody middle schoolers, you might be dealing with some candy-gram-related drama. Once you age out of classroom Valentine’s Day parties, kids start to send each other flowers and candy through their school. Tensions are high because if your kid doesn’t get a candy gram, there might be some tears involved. It’s a tough transition from 30 valentines to zero valentines.
My favorite part of Valentine’s Day when I was a kid was the giant Hershey’s Kisses my mom would get for my sister and me. These massive versions of the iconic candy were the perfect balance of slightly impractical, delicious, and long-lasting that you’d want in your novelty candy. If you’re a parent who just had a wonderful (or horrible) Valentine’s Day with your kids, these parenting tweets are sure to be relatable.
