While the holiday season and school break can be filled with wonder, joy, and excitement for families, others may feel stressed with the flurry of activities and also pressed to figure out how to entertain children when they are out of school.

Okay, so crafting is not your cup of tea. Consider having a game night with your children!
Baking from the Heart
Baking is another fabulous way to bond with your children! Don’t forget to include them in the clean up!
In the Spirit of Giving
Are you and your children feeling the weight of the world? Despite the idea of “goodwill to all men,” there is much sadness in the world that is hard for all of us to understand. How about helping our children (and ourselves) by doing something kind for someone else?
Hugs and Kisses
Most importantly, no matter what your plans are or how crazy these next few weeks become, don’t forget to simply cuddle with your children. This will bring peace to your heart and theirs.
All of us at the Portsmouth Neuropsychology Center wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday season and New Year!
