Plus, the popular parenting Web site has tips to help parents deal with the hurt feelings, disappointment and tears that sometimes come with the February 14th celebration.

"With the wealth of Valentine's Day activities, crafts, quizzes and parenting tips on FamilyEducation, families have everything they need to plan a fun, happy holiday."
