Favorite Couples

February
8

As 20 kids what love is (since Valentine’s day is just around the corner) and you’ll probably get 20 different answers. But ask them what makes a great couple and, say the experts at KidsHealth.org, those in the 6-12 age range will tell you it’s YOU: good ‘old Mom and Dad.

Of the more than 4,000 kids who participated in their online poll, more than 40% rated their parents as their favorite. When asked what they thought made a great couple, about a third said “it’s when two people are different but make a good combination, kindof like peanut butter and jelly.”

And so, here’s to all that makes a great sandwich: pb&j and of course, all the amazing, terrific, self-sacrificing things you do for your kids everyday. We, of course, already know we’re terrific..but it’s nice when your kids think you’re special, too.
