Holiday blues

The holidays can ring in times of fun and relaxation, but they can also bring on homesickness for the exchange students as they think of their friends and families back in their home country. Encourage your son/daughter to engage in American holiday celebrations and to share their holiday traditions with their you.

Keeping busy over holiday breaks is a great 'cure' to holiday induced homesickness.
