16 Dec Use a visual to count down the days until the holiday break
The holidays are an exciting time for everyone. Your child feels and feeds off of your energy and excitement. In addition, he is very aware of all the decorations that are popping up all over the place. Clue him into what is going on by using a visual calendar. Let him mark off the days until his holiday break. Explain all of these transitions to him, and try not to presume that he just knows what is going on in your home. Preparation is key! Happy Holidays!
