Are you feeling post holiday blues? For some, the long dark and cold days of winter loom larger now that the excitement and busyness of the holiday season is behind them. Give yourself a day or two to ease back into your routines. Try to come up with a small activity to do with your kids that can be fun and give you something to look forward to. Maybe a cozy movie night or a overnight camp out in the living room.

Parents often talk about wanting to expose their children to as many enriching experiences as possible to enhance their growth and learning. While that is a good thing for developing brains, it is equally important that children have "down time" in which they learn to occupy themselves and enjoy their own company. It is a balancing act, one which is unique to each family's and each child's needs. Quiet days at home "doing nothing" is still doing something.

Throughout your parenting, it is important to get your needs met, both as an adult and as a couple. This doesn't happen at the expense of the kids. Kids thrive when they see their parents happy, fulfilled, connected with others and most importantly, with one another.

Do you have a place in your home where your kids can go when they need some quiet time? It can also serve as a reading nook. All you need is a few comfy seats and book shelves. It will send the message to your kids that you value down time and reading.

Concerned how your child might react if he gets a gift he doesn't like? It might just be an opportunity to teach him appreciation. Read a holiday tip: http://ow.ly/pgZ4306ccnm
During the holidays, if kids are ungrateful of the gifts they receive, it can be a good time to teach grace and then share the unwanted gifts with others.
