Checklist for Celebrating the Holidays
The holiday season sometimes includes visits with extended family members or other close family friends. We encourage you to talk with the children in your care about who you will see and what they might expect. Let them know if there will be different rules or expectations during family visits.
It’s often helpful to make a plan of action in the event they feel overwhelmed. Here is a helpful checklist of talking points and tips to help guide your conversations.
