Christmas Top Tip No 2

Do you find the children getting more and more difficult as we get closer to Christmas? Their excitement levels are rising, they cannot cope and end up over-reacting to situations. They lose all control very easily.

With all the commercial hype they are already in a major state when they wake up on Christmas morning.

Minimise this by sharing the run-up to Christmas with them. Take them to see Father Christmas, let them help with baking Christmas cookies etc but, and this is the tricky part, be as calm and laid back as possible. If you can prevent them from becoming over-excited in the run-up to Christmas, it will pay dividends on the day.
