The holiday’s are full of wonderful opportunities to connect and celebrate with your family. They can also be complicated and stressful for those who are parenting children who have experienced loss. You may find yourself needing to respond with sensitivity to some big feelings at this time of year. Exploring Tips for Enjoying the Holidays with your Family was the goal of today’s Facebook Live Event hosted by Adoptive Families Association of BC. Together Rebecca and I discussed what makes the holidays tough for some kids, offered some tips for making the most of this season and suggested a few ways parents can take care of themselves. I’ve summarized the highlights from today’s conversation for anyone who was unable to join us or would like a reminder they can carry with them over the next few weeks.
