Seeking peace in your home with kids out of school?

Seeking peace in your home with kids out of school?

 

By: Teresa Woodruff, LPC, ATR-BC, CPCS

 

As a parent, you are constantly giving...your time, your attention, and your energy to your children. It's perfectly normal to feel exhausted and drained from all the giving. During the holiday season, added stress may cause you to feel exhausted and overwhelmed. Having children home from school places more demands on you, and unstimulated children may act out or display inappropriate attention-seeking behavior. Here are a few tips for maintaining a calm home and keeping your sanity:

 

  • Remember to take time for yourself: Read a book, go on a walk, color, or journal. Remembering to care for yourself will allow you to be calm and in control of your own emotions, thus setting the tone for the rest of the family.
  • Provide opportunities for downtime while still maintaining structure: Incorporate structured activities into each day and write the day's events on the refrigerator.
  • Reward positive behavior: Children thrive on positive reinforcement and display positive behaviors more frequently when it is acknowledged with a sticker, hug, or simple "good job."
  • Give them attention: 20 minutes of undivided attention in the mornings can shape their behavior for the entire day. Put down your phone and play a game with them, read a book, or color.
  • Stimulate their minds: Print off coloring sheets of their favorite characters, create scavenger hunts around the house, or encourage them to create a story with a handful of objects that you give them.
