Adjusting the Rules Successfully for Kids during the Celebrations - HOLIDAY STRESS GUIDE FOR PARENTS
Adjust your rules accordingly during any parties or holiday celebrations this year successfully. The holidays throw off normal routines, whether it’s what time they go to bed or the amount of screen time or sugar they’re allowed. Talk to your kids pre-season. Show them a calendar, and put a star on each day that you have an event. You’re giving them a heads-up that this is an exception. For example, when you go to Auntie’s house and she has pop, you could say "it's ok for you to have but it’s not going to be like this all the time."
