The busy holidays are here! Holidays with the many activities, gatherings, sights and treats can be such a special time of year for many, but they can also be challenging. The stress we parents may feel during this busy season can be overwhelming and make it a little more difficult to maintain an attitude of gratitude. The holidays may also be overwhelming for kids. The same special experiences and sensory activities that can bring joy can also be the very things that can bring on anxiety, meltdowns, and overwhelm to our kids. Many children may experience a myriad of emotions ranging from intense excitement to disappointment. Emotional regulation can be even harder during this time of year. To help with this, this week’s SELF Talk newsletter includes lessons and activities to help you and your child manage emotional stress, find calm, and regulate emotions, so that the season may be a little more enjoyable.
