Whether you celebrate it or not, some sweet thoughts to share with the kids for Valentine's Day.
FOX's Lisa Brady has the details:
Ah, Valentine's Day, for some parents, a welcome chance for some we time and for kids it can be quite the candy bonanza in school.
But it is possible to have it mean more than chocolate:
(Dr. Wright) "The game we want to play is to create our own traditions."
(Dr. Wright) "One of the first things parents can help a child understand: If you want to have friends, be a friend."
Treating others the way you'd want be treated and he says if the kids are giving out Valentine's in class, tap into that excitement as a chance to help them learn to accentuate the positive:
(Dr. Wright) "What's cool about each one, it may be cool that she's got a pet, it may be cool that he's a good baseball player."
Dr. Wright suggests the more families can celebrate humanity and human potential, the better, and he says don't let the commercialism get you down.
