Proactive Christmas vacation for the kids.

Posted on 12/27/2016 by Greg Yoder

The time after Christmas can be kind of depressing. We all get geared up for the holiday, and then—BOOM—it’s all done, and then we wait for the ball to drop so we can start a new year. For kids, this can be a time of frustration, almost like a holiday sugar hangover. They may not even know what’s causing it. Gift envy can create jealousy, frustration, and all-out conflict with brothers and sisters. What do we do? Be proactive about the Christmas vacation. Give your kids things to do like help take down the Christmas tree and put away decorations. Give them daily chores to do before playtime. And schedule some time together as a family—just having fun. Togetherness during the holidays will be something they remember for a lifetime.

Suggested Reading: Psalm 127:3-5
