Golden Nuggets from the Counselor

Feeling Strung Out?!

The winter holidays are a joyous season. It is a time when families share treasured traditions, customs and beliefs with relatives and friends far and near. But quite often, our efforts to create the “perfect holiday” for our families result in undue stress on parents and children alike. And in the process, we tend to lose sight of what is truly important.

As we enter into the holiday season, reflect on those things which mean the most to your family.

Sit down as a family and rank in order those traditions and rituals which are most important and then focus on those this holiday season:

  • enjoying family and friends

  • exchanging gifts sharing with those less fortunate

  • hosting or attending holiday festivities

  • celebrating religious traditions and beliefs

  • enjoying a few days off from job and school

  • decorating the home

  • enjoying special traditions

  • baking and preparing holiday goodies

  • making preparations for a new year

  • other

A Note from Nurse Martin

The holiday season is here. The American Academy of Pediatrics has some toy safety tips for you!

  • Choose toys for your child’s age, skill level and interest. Toys that are too advanced can injure younger children.

  • For children under 10, avoid toys that must be plugged into an electrical outlet.

  • Read any warning labels and instructions, and show your child how to use the toy.

  • Be cautious about toys that have button batteries or magnets, which can be harmful or fatal if swallowed.

  • Toys for older siblings should be kept separate from young children, who could choke on small pieces.
