5 Tips to Help You, and Your Kids, Enjoy the Holidays More
http://www.ofearthandhearth.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/5-Tips-to-Help-You-and-Your-Kids-Enjoy-the-Holidays-More.png

It’s no secret that the holidays are a stressful time. There are parties to plan, gatherings to attend, meals to cook (and eat), and shopping to do. What we sometimes forget is that things that are stressful for us are often as much, if not more so, for our children. As adults, we’ve had a lifetime of practice in stress management techniques. Our children, on the other hand, have not had that same opportunity. Their inability to manage their stress often manifests as undesirable behavior.



“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” as the old saying goes. Here are a few tips to help save your sanity and keep the peace in your house so you, and your children, can enjoy the holidays more.







### Keep it routine

One of the hallmarks of the holiday season is that it brings activities and traditions that only take place once a year. But this is also one of the major causes of stress for children during the holidays because it means the loss of their routines. Routines and schedules make children feel safe because their environment is predictable and they know what to expect next. Help eliminate the stress caused by loss of predictability, particularly during holiday travel, by keeping as much of your child’s routine in place as possible. This will be more important for younger children than for older children. Keeping nap times regular, in particular, will be a lifesaver during the festivities. But even keeping small things, like your child’s blanket or favorite book, or maintaining the bedtime routine, will go a long way to making your child feel more secure and help them enjoy the holidays.



### Prep kids for events

For times when routines must be given up for holiday events, preparing kids for these changes will increase predictability for them. Tell your child where you’ll be going, what you’ll be doing, and who you’ll be with. Knowing what to expect will decrease meltdowns and the resistance that comes with unexpected change.





### Practice saying “no”

It’s easy to get overloaded with events and activities during the holiday season. We want to participate in all the parties, see all the light displays, attend all the concerts, and generally revel in all the season has to offer. And we want our kids to experience all the sights and wonders as well. However, taking on too many engagements is not just stressful for us, which can lead to us being short and cranky with our kids. It’s also stressful for our children. It is important for us to carefully choose the things we are going to engage our families in to avoid overwhelming ourselves and our kids. This may mean saying “no” to some events and activities.





### Schedule downtime

In addition to saying “no” to some activities, we need to be intentional about scheduling downtime for ourselves and our families. This means planning blocks of time where we can just be home, relaxing, with no agenda except being together. This gives everyone time to wind down, decompress, and reconnect, all of which are important to reducing unwanted behavior in children.





### Focus on family time

This may seem obvious, but despite being a major part of the “reason for the season”, family time can easily get lost in the hustle and bustle of celebrating. Taking even ten minutes to sit with your child and focus on them (that means no TV, no phones, just you and the child) will help the child feel more connected and more relaxed. This, in turn, will reduce undesirable behavior and help everyone in your house to enjoy the holidays more.



The holidays can be an incredibly magical time for families as we get to watch our children experience all the traditions and rituals that the season brings. But we all know that the holidays can easily go from magical to manic as we try to do and see everything in a short time. This frantic pace can easily be overwhelming for our children, which in turn contributes to unwanted behaviors. However, utilizing the 5 easy steps above can help you save your sanity, restore the magic of the season, and help you and your kids enjoy the holidays more.

These tips can be applied to help us keep our cool in the holiday craziness as well. It's helpful for us to keep as much of our routine as possible and make sure to schedule downtime for ourselves so we don't get burnt out. It's also helpful to focus on time with our families or close friends during this time of the year. This prevents cases of the holiday blues and loneliness. If nothing else, you can keep the info in case you ever have kids in the future!

Sorry but I don't see any stress in holidays or week-end .. and in general with what is written . be with ur children , enjoy life , do normal things together - and where is problem ? 
Children must share our normal life since the childhood . If pearents must go somewhere where is no place for children - so it is like this . Children must be explained rules . Where is stress ?

Wow, you are lucky! In my experience, a lot of people find the holidays stressful because there seems like there is so much to do. Maybe that's just an American phenomenon? I'm not sure. The American Psychological Association released this information on holiday stress: https://www.apa.org/news/press/releases/2006/12/holiday-stress.pdf
This stress is largely self-created. We schedule too much for ourselves to do during such a short season. But it can also stem from money struggles or family issues. Whatever the cause, our stress ends up affecting our children in a negative way. When that happens it translates into negative behaviors in our children which then add to our stress and frustration. It's a vicious cycle. That's why I feel it's important for us to remember how our children are affected so that we can interpret their behaviors correctly and respond appropriately, rather than with unnecessary harshness or punishments. Thanks for taking the time to read and comment!
