Parent Tips for the Holidays - Keep Your Expectations Low

Holidays are a mix of joy and sadness. It’s a time to celebrate, but also a time to remember people we’ve lost, and regrets we have. When the holidays come around, we’re typically prepared to have fun, but not always prepared for the wistfulness and sadness that may accompany the holiday. Be prepared for both—in fact, try to embrace both.
