As parents, we want Christmas morning to be a time full of smiles and excitement for both our children and ourselves. We hope that our kids will remember our holidays together as a family when they are adults and that we can talk about the day for years to come. However, Christmas can easily become overwhelming to children and not live up to our expectations as parents. With a little bit of planning and preparation, you can reduce stress on Christmas morning and enjoy your holiday together.
Everyone looks forward to Halloween-kids and parents alike! It's all about dressing up and candy-what could be bad! But, there is one, small part of Halloween that has always bothered me...the 'trick' part. For older kids and teens, the interpretation of 'tricking' can turn into egging cars, toilet-papering neighbors' homes and sometimes even more serious behaviour.
If you’re haunted by ghosts of Craziness Past, look toward ways to deck the holidays: cut out the complications, slow down, smell the apple cider and enjoy your children.
The holiday season is the most non eco-friendly time of the year with all the additional waste we generate. But is doesn’t have to be that way! There are many very simple changes we can make to reduce our waste significantly during this time. The possibilities are endless if you use your imagination, but here are just a few smart and inexpensive green ideas.
