I have a confession to make: I am not a Valentine’s Day type of person. All the cards and flowers and boxes of candy are just stuff I’ll eventually have to throw away. But my son seems to be a real romantic. He’s entering that age when kids can experience heartbreak. It’s a sensitive moment that no mom wants to experience but that we all have to deal with. It could happen that your child does not get that special Valentine he’s hoped to receive, or maybe that little friend he’s secretly in love with doesn’t like him back. Have you ever seen a heartbroken child? That’s heartbreaking in itself! If your child is experiencing his or her first let down in love, here are my tips to help heal the wounds. • No matter how young your child is, if he is heartbroken, you have to respect his feelings. For him, there is no such a thing as a silly or childish love.
