Find Ways to Show Valentine Love to Young Adults
Please know that Valentine’s Day is a very stressful time for teenagers and young adults. The reason is that they are putting so much pressure on themselves to have a perfect relationship. If they are in a relationship, they may not feel like it’s “good enough”. If they aren’t in a relationship, they feel like they want to be.
Our young people feel a lot of FOMO (fear of missing out) because of social media. This makes a lot of simple things complicated. By creating memories together and including their friends, they will feel special. Make it a fun event!
Be sure if your young adult is away to send a care package for Valentine’s!
