The Single Mom's Guide to Valentine's Day (Embrace It, Girl)!

Valentine's Day is fast approaching and single moms everywhere are … rejoicing? Single mom and business expert Heather Monahan is putting out a positive message that Valentine's Days that the holiday is about love – but that doesn't have to mean romantic love. Here are Heather's tips for single moms on Valentine's Day!

  • Create some annual activities that you do with just you and your kids. Whether you want to get crafty or just watch "A Charlie Brown Valentine" with your kids as you devour some pizza, creating annual rituals will be fun and give you and your kids something to look forward to every year.
  • Throw your own party with your kids. If you're feeling a bit down this year, or don’t have anywhere to go, throw your own party! Invite some of the other parents (whether single or in relationships) over with their kids to make Valentines and enjoy some sweets.
  • Love yourself and practice self-care. Embrace where you are right now in your life and remember there’s nothing wrong with being single! If no one is buying you a Valentine’s Day gift this year, buy or make yourself one. Do something nice for you, whether that’s booking a massage, running a bubble bath or buying yourself something special.
  • Do something nice for someone else. One of the best ways to feel love is to give love. You can give love in small ways and large ways. You could smile at someone on the street, pay for someone’s meal behind you in a drive through, donate to a charity and spend some time volunteering.
