The holiday season is in full swing and as families get together for celebrations, they might find themselves faced with several challenges: co-sleeping while traveling, maintaining balance with so much going on, nurturing a new baby, and much more. There have been several posts here at API Speaks related to the holidays and so today, I thought I’d compile them all in one place – Attachment Parenting and the Holidays.
Thankful – Even young children can learn how to be thankful for what they have this holiday season.
Attached During the Holiday – Learn how one family stays attached during the busy holiday season.
The Giving Tree – One mom shares her family traditions and asks you to share yours.
Creating Holiday Traditions – Every year you have the opportunity to create a new holiday tradition, what do you have planned for this year?
Attachment Parenting Makes the Holidays Easier – Babywearing leaves you with two hands free! What other ways has attachment parenting made your holiday season a little bit easier?
Holiday Expectations Denied – How do you handle it when your holiday plans don’t go as expected?
A Foundation of Trust – Santa or no Santa? Weigh in on this issue.
Guiding Children to Associate the Holiday Season with Giving – The holidays are more about giving than getting; help your children embrace this idea.
AP Picture Books Make Great Holiday Presents – What holiday list would be complete without a gift recommendation?
Ringing in the New Year – A New Year’s Resolution for each of API’s Principles of Parenting.
