Tip of the Week: Holiday Planning

The upcoming holidays will likely look a little different this year. Whether your plans are to stay home and have a quiet celebration with immediate family, or you are planning a larger Covid-safe gathering, it is equally important to prepare your child for the day. Having a menu ahead of time with portion sizes written out, a list of activities for the day, and a space to allow your child to reset when needed are all important tools for having a successful, off-routine day. Holidays can be successful with a little pre-planning and clear expectations.
