USEP-OHIO PARENT TIP:  Surviving Holiday Stress


This brief Parent Tip is provided at no cost by United Services for Effective Parenting-Ohio, Inc. as a tool to assist parents, teachers, grandparents and all who help to care for and to raise our children. For more information on this and other tools from USEP-OHIO refer to the conclusion of this Parent Tip.


The holiday trifecta, Thanksgiving, Christmas (for some of us, Hanukkah for others) and New Years is upon us.  Oh Joy!  Parents have told me, “Yes, write another parent tip on stress!”  We all seem to feel it, and we are not alone with the challenges of finding joy among the stressors. 


A Prevention Magazine/Dateline NBC Survey reports that most people feel nervous, stressed, and have family conflict during the holidays.  They worry about money, feel over-committed, take on too much responsibility, and feel pressured to do things they don’t really want to do. 


The gap between what we hope the season will be like versus how it turns out, is usually caused by our high expectations of the season.  We hope for Christmas trees and Hanukkah festivities, laughter, generosity, giving, beautiful music, candlelight services, family gatherings, cookies and eggnog, togetherness, surprises, fun, love, memories and peace on earth and in the family.


Our images may not include what we might also receive - exhaustion, busyness, loneliness, depression, guilt, regrets, debt, family conflicts, painful memories, grief and separation from loved ones. This gap between our hopes and reality is often increased by the focus on activity rather than reflection.  Winter weather can also bring us down.  For some people feelings of depression (seasonal affective disorder - SAD) intensified by the short, dark days keep us from experiencing “the most wonderful time of the year”. Poor boundaries – A combination of not knowing our limits and not allowing ourselves to say “NO” can complicate an already frenetic season.  Family issues and poor communication, lack of forgiveness and resurfacing of old grudges can cause new conflicts.  Yikes!


Losses like divorce, illness, death or the anniversary of a loss sometimes surprise us with the intense feelings they provoke during the holidays.


So how can we manage the gap between the good feelings and the frustrations?

·         Set reasonable expectations.

·         Give yourself permission.  Ask for help and take it when offered.

·         Don’t ignore your grief, dive in and feel it, then set it aside for later.

·         Enjoy the good things.  Avoid “grinchiness”.

·         Make good choices – sleep, eat well, exercise.

·         Seek quiet and peace.  Find ways to give to those who are in need, and savor the satisfaction.

Reflect - Listen for the gentle whisper of the season by reflecting on your faith, your feelings of abundance and the simple joys of family, friends and the beauty of the world around you.

News from the Nurse--Illness at School

District Nurse—Donna Leroy

As we enter the winter months, we will see more children who become ill at school. Any child exhibiting symptoms of being contagious such as vomiting, diarrhea, pink eye, impetigo or fever will be sent home. Please remember to update the school with home or work phone number changes or who to release a sick child to if the parents are not available.

Also, remember that the school does not dispense medicine to children who become ill. If a child is taking medicine of any kind, the parent must:

* Bring the medicine to school in its original container.

* Complete signed permission forms by the parent and physician
