A few weeks ago, we received an important press release from Santa’s Workshop regarding ‘Santa’s Top Holiday Gifts.’ We quickly flew to the North Pole and collaborated with him and his elves to bring you this year’s list of the hottest toys and the latest gadgets for every member of your family. May your shopping days ahead be merry and bright!
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.
