Holiday Stress in Children
Coping With Everyday Problems on Special Occasions
How can a stressed out child be thankful?
Get ready to leave!
Children in California today are showing signs of stress: poor sleep, poor diet, low academic achievement, in alarming numbers. We have a tip to help families release stress, communicate better and remember that they are thankful for each other.
Have a family meeting before the holiday:
With the variety of blended families and a variety of work/school/sports schedules each family member can pick one thing that is most important to them throughout the holiday season.
Plan for quiet time to rest.
At Cross Creek Counseling, we have rooms designed to enhance relaxation, nutrition and self-expression. Whether you want a little direction for helping you and your child adjust to holiday stress or you are concerned that your child is too stressed, we can help.
