Episode 72: When Your Child Doesn’t Want to Get Out of Holiday Mode with Jamie M
When Your Child Doesn’t Want to get out of Holiday Mode with Jamie M
Jamie M is a mom to her 2 year old son who is coming off of a few weeks of lots of chocolate, tv and mom-ing. Jamie is stressing on how to get back to what she considers normal for her son post holidays. If you have also let your rules go by the wayside this holiday season, listen along for some strategies to smooth this transition and even create new structure in your household in 2023.
“The beginning of the New Year becomes so stressful for everyone because they feel like they need to make strict changes or do things cold turkey. I feel like we need to ease into it. It's a healthy, more relaxed way to approach change.”- Sue Groner
