Welcome to Day 3 of 12 Days of Christmas!
The holidays can be a tough time mentally for anyone. With the pandemic ongoing, some of us may have experienced tough challenges. We've decided to create a series of activities for everyone in the family to keep us emotionally balanced! Feel free to create your own twist or add to the activity!
Day 3: Have a one-on-one date with your child and chat about their favorite parts of Christmas!
Reflecting is a very helpful tool for young children. When you encourage your child to reflect you help them build and strengthen important skills such as memory, questioning, investigating, explaining, and consideration. The more you talk about what has happened, you also help your child learn from their experiences and develop their interpersonal skills.
All of which they will use as they grow older and encounter more complex social situations. Especially ones that have conflict!
