  • I think the holiday is more for older people honestly. My kids daycare wants to have a party and expects parents to show up... I'm like... do you not realize WHY I send them to daycare? Maybe so I can WORK? Lol. Plus, I think Valentines cards for everyone in the class is fair but like I said it is more for older people.

  • I don't mind it at all. It is something she loves doing and anything to get her to pratice writing is great.

  • I don't mind the cards, but I wish people would quit sending treats with them to the school. Last year he came home with candy, play doh, ink stamps - all crap he doesn't need. Plus it makes the kids who don't bring anything besides plain valentines feel bad.

  • NotPanicking I'm am so right there with you. They bring home all this crap..and I get to be the bad guy by telling them "No you can't eat 20 pieces of candy today" I don't mind the writing practise but stop already with the treats. My husband and I refuse to participate in Valentines day personally. It feels forced...if you need a holiday to tell or show the one you love that you love them...somethings wrong to begin with.

  • fun for the kids yes but not fun for the parents who have 4 kids who have to write out 15-30 per kid.

  • why don't you just write it?

    Answer by gulfcoastmom4 at 5:57 PM on Feb. 8, 2010

  • I LOVE IT!

    its great!

    and once they get old enough they can write their own stuff on. once they learned some letters they do it anyway.
