All I Want For Christmas, Hanukah or Kwanza!

TIME: Time to really laugh, time to play, time to bake cookies, time to go to library and get books for bedtime stories. time to walk around the park, go to the zoo, play with friends and family.

HUGS/ SMILES: Lots of hugs and smiles when everything else is going crazy. You give a smile and you get a smile back. Everyone needs at least 10 hugs a day to grow and thrive. Take time to have a “Family Hug” especially in the morning and definitely before bedtime. This will help send away all the negative feelings of the day. Better dreams will happen.

LISTENING EAR: Turn off your cell phone, twitter, texting, and TV. Give me a chance to talk with you about “stuff”. Sometimes I need to know you are there for me. This means I don’t have to resort to screaming, tantrums, and other most annoying behaviors. Just listen before getting upset! Just really listen.
