The holidays are filled with such joy, such excitement, such wonder. It truly is an amazing time of year.
But, it also has some parts that can be difficult for families.
Some kids have to go from Mom’s house to Dad’s house. Which is stressful.
Some kids are questioning the whole “Santa” thing. Which is stressful.
Some kids get sensory overload with all the bright lights. music, and busy crowds. Which is stressful.
Some kids don’t like being touched or hugged by extended family members and friends. Which can be stressful.
