‘Tis the season to be jolly… and stressed out? Yes, the Children’s Hospital of Central California sadly points out an increase in child abuse during the holidays due to stress. Unmanaged Christmas stress can turn into anger and violence. Let’s keep the holidays bright with an emphasis on connecting and strengthening family bonds. Happy, peaceful memories can be had with a little effort to learn to manage anger and stress. Real time techniques are free and available yet very few families are aware of how easy it is to implement. Please share this with your friends so we can increase our children’s chances of having a healthy, safe, and Merry Christmas.
