Valentine’s Day is Coming! Let’s Talk about Relationships • Science of Parenting • Iowa State University Extension and Outreach 

A father and daughter look at each other joyfully, both wearing red heart sunglasses and holding a heart-shaped sucker together.

We are sneaking up on February, which brings Valentine’s
Day! On the Science of Parenting, we talk about our relationships with our
kids, and next month we are diving into COUPLE relationships – both kids and
adults.

We will explore suggestions for how to navigate when your
child is expressing interest in dating and some tips for you and your co-parent.
We will also identify a few red flags to be addressed in our own behavior and
relationships!

As I’ve shared before, I have two young kiddos at home right
now. Other team members have teens who are now dating. As a parent of young
children, I still have to intentionally give thought to my relationship with my
partner. In the mix of keeping up with an active preschooler and waking at
night with an infant, it’s easier than I’d like to admit to forget to dedicate
time specifically to my partner. As the chaos of the recent holiday subsides, I
am wondering when the last time was that we spent couple time together that
didn’t involve the kids, our jobs, or the house?

I know that my relationship with my partner can
greatly influence my parenting and my children, so it’s time to get back into
focus. Join us this month as we look at our relationships and parenting!
