10 Steps to a Less Stressful Holiday

Sleigh bells are ringing, the candles are lit, everyone is awash in holiday cheer. But you're not feeling at all like one of Santa's little helpers. In fact, you're starting to feel like the Grinch. Your life has become an endless round of obligations: cards to send, presents to buy, entertaining, decorating. . . . But don't despair. Herein, some tips to help you simplify so you can get back to the spiritual heart of the holidays.

1. Ask for your family's input.

Everyone in the family has hopes and dreams for the holiday, but you can't read minds. Carole Bodger, author of Smart Guide to Relieving Stress (John Wiley & Sons, 1999), suggests that you call a family meeting. "Once the whole family is gathered, ask each person to take a moment to list his or her three favorite holiday activities -- story reading around the fireplace, attending a candlelit worship service, decorating cookies, helping out at a homeless shelter -- whatever they think would make for a special time. Then ask for three things they could do without. This will help you create a holiday that's guaranteed to contain at least one of everyone's favorites, along with ideas for streamlining the celebration.
"Schedule the meeting before the pressure starts to build," Bodger advises. "That way, you won't find out that your daughter really wants to sing in the church Christmas pageant after it's too late to sign her up."

    2. Spend the holidays at home this year.

    You have a newborn. Or a job deadline. Right now, the last thing you can deal with is the pressure of making travel plans for the busiest time of the year. "Explain to your parents, 'Mom, Dad, I would love to visit, but it would just be too much for me -- the kids are too little to travel, and I have only a few days off,' " says Dorothy Cantor, Psy.D., former head of the American Psychological Association. "Be honest. Your relationship should be able to withstand the disappointment." Then call the kids together for a family video or audiotape and get to the post office early to mail it. Phone your parents on the first night of Hanukkah or on Christmas morning and make plans to visit during the new year.

      3. Limit the optional events.

      There are the things you absolutely must do, such as attend your daughter's holiday recital or the preschool class party. Add to those the adult-oriented festivities -- office get-togethers, carol sing-alongs, New Year's Day open houses -- and you barely have a minute to breathe. To whittle down the list, set limits. Decide in advance just how many parties or other events you can handle, and give the green light to the first four invitations to arrive. Then politely but firmly refuse the rest. "If you decide to demur, do it gracefully," says Parents etiquette expert Peggy Post. "Even if you don't want to go, try to sound appreciative that you've been invited."

        4. Resist the urge to be Martha Stewart.

        The transformation seems to take place overnight. Suddenly, every house on the block has gargantuan wreaths over the door, tapered candles twinkling in the windows, and a display of light-up choirboys on the lawn. Have your neighbors tapped into some network of indigent elves looking for preholiday employment? "These days, it seems we no longer have to be just Martha Stewart," Bodger says. "We have to be Bob Vila too. We have to bake the cookies and nail together a little holiday dollhouse."
        If you feel that holiday decor is a must, make an impact simply. Buy a fake tree (the current crop is amazingly lifelike) with prestrung lights for yearly reuse. Choose wreaths made of pinecones for a longer shelf life. And if you're committed to bringing home a six-foot spruce, drape it with a simple red ribbon and add tiny white lights and red Christmas balls. Voila -- a design statement worthy of Martha herself, with half the fuss.
        Above all, stop torturing yourself. My house would never pass the deck- the-halls test. Our 5-year-old is in charge of the tree, and when he finishes hanging the ornaments, they're all two feet from the floor and huddled together for warmth. But who cares? His sense of pride in doing something for the family is palpable.

          5. Get choosy about Christmas cards.

          "No one has to send cards if she doesn't wish to," Post advises. "It's a personal choice." Check your greeting-card pulse. If you love sending cards, there are some ways to make it more manageable.
          Start by asking yourself what holiday cards mean to you. Are they your way of keeping in touch when you've been out of contact? Then you can cut down by not sending to people you see all the time. Or you might want to reverse the process and send cards only to family and close friends. Don't get caught in the reciprocity trap. "In my family, we don't get a card back from every person we send one to," Bodger points out, "and it certainly doesn't make us hate them for life."
          The key to making your life easier is to cross guilt off your list. If you've got hundreds of cards to send, consider preprinted ones. Next, automate. Hire your own children or a neighborhood teen to help out. Have them address envelopes and stick on stamps. Time elapsed: one night.

            6. Stress the spiritual.

            What parents need to focus on, given that they can't do it all, is activities that create meaning and memories. So read a book that discusses the religious aspects of the holidays. Attend a religious service designed for children. Buy an extra present for a children's charity and bring the kids with you when you drop it off. Trim the tree or light the menorah and then toast the season with hot cider. And don't forget to share your own precious holiday memories with your kids. Relive that first ride downhill on your brand-new Flexible Flyer. You remember, don't you? The flash of terror, then sheer exhilaration. That hill always looked so much less imposing once you'd made it down. On January 2, you'll look back and feel the same way about the holidays.

              7. Winnow the Wish list.

              It's not the great American novel. It's little Joshua's letter to Santa, and he's been scribbling since June. Is he getting everything he wants? No way. Generosity may be one of the hallmarks of the season, but that doesn't mean giving free rein to materialism. Sit down with your better half and decide in advance how many presents are appropriate. If Josh is over 5, ask him to prioritize. If he still believes in Santa, explain that room on the sleigh is limited. "Kids are going to ask for everything they see on television or at their friends' houses," Cantor says. "So there has to be a reasonable limit." Meaning that if Joshua's first choice is that $2,000 motorized miniature Jaguar convertible that Cody's dad bought for him, move on to door number two. You may also want to take a stand on violent or sexist toys. Don't let the holiday spirit weaken your resolve. Be true to your principles -- and your budget.

                8. Don't shop till you drop.

                Start early. And invite a friend along. You'll have more fun, and you can stop for a snack and a chat. "Give yourself frequent breaks while shopping," suggests Jeff Davidson, author of The Joy of Simple Living (Rodale, 1999). "It's not a marathon. Stop and enjoy the seasonal decor. There is absolutely no reason to make shopping for loved ones anything but a joyful experience." Make things easy for yourself. If the gift wrapping is free and the lines aren't too long, take advantage of the service. (In my house, Santa can be pretty bleary-eyed and grumpy on Christmas morning after staying up all night wrapping presents.) If you love that silk scarf, buy it in multiples. My aunt Sarah and my mom both adore the ones I gave them last Christmas. Luckily, they live at opposite ends of the country.

                  9. Hire some of Santa's helpers.

                  "Ask your local supermarket about holiday platters, catering for dinner parties, and home deliveries," Davidson says. And don't be shy. "When guests ask what they can bring," he advises, "tell them." Pay a helpful teen to assist you in the kitchen, and consider hiring a cleaning service so you're not left scrubbing the bathroom tiles the night before. That way, you can truly relax. It happens only once a year, and the extra expense will be well worth it. The bottom line here? Do whatever you can to make your life easier.

                    10. Give yourself a time-out.

                    Right now, before you have a nervous breakdown. Stop roasting those chestnuts. Stop burning that midnight menorah oil. And don't even think about answering the phone. "Give a gift to yourself -- and not just the kind that you wrap with a bow," Bodger says. "Take an invigorating walk or spring for a sitter and take an afternoon off. You'll appreciate it, and so will your kids. There's a good reason why flight attendants advise us to place the oxygen mask on ourselves first, before we help others. If we're not okay, there's no way we can take care of anyone else."

                    Rude vs. Mean vs. Bullying:

                    A few weeks ago, I had the terrific fortune of getting to present some of the bullying prevention work that I do to a group of children at a local bookstore. As if interacting with smiling, exuberant young people was not gift enough, a reporter also attended the event a wrote a lovely article about my book and the work I do with kids, parents, educators and youth care professionals. All in all, it was dream publicity and since then, has sparked many conversations with people in my town who saw my photo in the newspaper and immediately related to the examples of bullying that were discussed.                                    
                    I have been brought to tears more than once since the article ran, while listening to parents share their feelings of outrage and helplessness over their kids' experiences with bullying in school. One gifted but socially awkward middle school student blew me away with his articulate, poised, yet searingly painful accounts of relentless physical and verbal bullying on his school bus. An elementary school-aged girl described how she had to learn to shed her Australian accent within a month of entering U.S. schools because of how she was shunned by her classmates. The commonness of it all routinely astounds me with every new account; the pervasive cruelty makes my jaw drop every time.
                    It is important for me to begin this article by establishing that without doubt, many of the stories of bullying that are shared with me are horrifying and some are unspeakably cruel. But now, I also want to be honest and share that some of the stories are... well... really not so bad.
                    Take this story recently shared with me by an acquaintance who read about my professional work:
                    "Signe, I saw your picture in the paper last week. Congratulations! I didn't know you worked with bullied students. It's so important that you do -- things have gotten so bad! Last week, my daughter was bullied really badly after school! She was getting off of her bus when this kid from our neighborhood threw a fistful of leaves right in her face! When she got home, she still had leaves in the hood of her coat. It's just awful! I don't know what to do about these bullies."
                    "Was she very upset when she got home?" I empathized.
                    "No. She just brushed the leaves off and told me they were having fun together," she said.
                    "Oh," I answered knowingly, aware that oftentimes kids try to downplay victimization by bullies from their parents, due to the embarrassment and shame they feel. "Did you get the sense she was covering for the boy?"
                    "No, no. She really seemed to think it was fun. She said that she threw leaves back at him, which I told her NEVER to do again! The nerve of those kids."
                    "Those 'kids,' I clarified. "Was it just the one boy throwing leaves or were there a bunch of kids all ganging up on her?"
                    "No, it was just this one boy that lives about a block from us," she assured me.
                    "Is he usually mean to her? Has he bothered her after school before?" I asked, eager at this point to figure out what the bullying issue was.
                    "No. I don't think so at least. That was the first time she ever said anything about him. It was definitely the first time that I noticed the leaves all over her coat. But it better be the last time! I won't stand for her being bullied by that kid. Next time, I am going to make sure the Principal knows what is going on after school lets out!"
                    While I always want to be careful not to minimize anyone's experience (it's the social worker in me!) and a part of me suspects that the sharing of this particular story may have been simply this parent's spontaneous way of making conversation with me in a store aisle, I hear these "alarming" (read: benign) stories often enough to conclude that there is a real need to draw a distinction between behavior that is rude, behavior that is mean and behavior that is characteristic of bullying. I first heard bestselling children's author, Trudy Ludwig, talk about these distinguishing terms and, finding them so helpful, have gone on to use them as follows:
                    Rude = Inadvertently saying or doing something that hurts someone else.
                    A particular relative of mine (whose name it would be rude of me to mention) often looks my curly red hair up and down before inquiring in a sweet tone, "Have you ever thought about coloring your hair?" or "I think you look so much more sophisticated when you straighten your hair, Signe." This doting family member thinks she is helping me. he rest of the people in the room cringe at her boldness and I am left to wonder if being a brunette would suit me. Her comments can sting, but remembering that they come from a place of love -- in her mind -- helps me to remember what to do with the advice...
                    From kids, rudeness might look more like burping in someone's face, jumping ahead in line, bragging about achieving the highest grade or even throwing a crushed up pile of leaves in someone's face. On their own, any of these behaviors could appear as elements of bullying, but when looked at in context, incidents of rudeness are usually spontaneous, unplanned inconsideration, based on thoughtlessness, poor manners or narcissism, but not meant to actually hurt someone.

                    Mean = Purposefully saying or doing something to hurt someone once (or maybe twice).
                    The main distinction between "rude" and "mean" behavior has to do with intention; while rudeness is often unintentional, mean behavior very much aims to hurt or depreciate someone. Kids are mean to each other when they criticize clothing, appearance, intelligence, coolness or just about anything else they can find to denigrate. Meanness also sounds like words spoken in anger -- impulsive cruelty that is often regretted in short order. Very often, mean behavior in kids is motivated by angry feelings and/or the misguided goal of propping themselves up in comparison to the person they are putting down. Commonly, meanness in kids sounds an awful lot like:
                    • "Are you seriously wearing that sweater again? Didn't you just wear it, like, last week? Get a life."
                    • "You are so fat/ugly/stupid/gay."
                    • "I hate you!"
                    Make no mistake; mean behaviors can wound deeply and adults can make a huge difference in the lives of young people when they hold kids accountable for being mean. Yet, meanness is different from bullying in important ways that should be understood and differentiated when it comes to intervention.
                    Bullying = Intentionally aggressive behavior, repeated over time, that involves an imbalance of power. 
                    Experts agree that bullying entails three key elements: an intent to harm, a power imbalance and repeated acts or threats of aggressive behavior. Kids who bully say or do something intentionally hurtful to others and they keep doing it, with no sense of regret or remorse -- even when targets of bullying show or express their hurt or tell the aggressors to stop.
                    Bullying may be physical, verbal, relational or carried out via technology:
                    Physical aggression was once the gold standard of bullying-- the "sticks and stones" that made adults in charge stand up and take notice. This kind of bullying includes hitting, punching, kicking, spitting, tripping, hair pulling, slamming a child into a locker and a range of other behaviors that involve physical aggression.
                    Verbal aggression is what our parents used to advise us to "just ignore." We now know that despite the old adage, words and threats can, indeed, hurt and can even cause profound, lasting harm.
                    Relational aggression is a form of bullying in which kids use their friendship--or the threat of taking their friendship away--to hurt someone. Social exclusion, shunning, hazing, and rumor spreading are all forms of this pervasive type of bullying that can be especially beguiling and crushing to kids.
                    Cyberbullying is a specific form of bullying that involves technology. According to Hinduja and Patchin of the Cyberbullying Research Center, it is the "willful and repeated harm inflicted through the use of computers, cell phones, and other electronic devices." Notably, the likelihood of repeated harm is especially high with cyberbullying because electronic messages can be accessed by multiple parties, resulting in repeated exposure and repeated harm.
                    So, why is it so important to make the distinction between rude, mean and bullying? Can't I just let parents share with me stories about their kids?
                    Here's the thing; in our culture of 24/7 news cycles and social media sound bytes, we have a better opportunity than ever before to bring attention to important issues. In the last few years, Americans have collectively paid attention to the issue of bullying like never before; millions of school children have been given a voice, 49 states in the U.S. have passed anti-bullying legislation, and thousands of adults have been trained in important strategies to keep kids safe and dignified in schools and communities. These are significant achievements.
                    At the same time, however, I have already begun to see that gratuitous references to bullying are creating a bit of a "little boy who cried wolf" phenomena. In other words, if kids and parents improperly classify rudeness and mean behavior as bullying -- whether to simply make conversation or to bring attention to their short-term discomfort -- we all run the risk of becoming so sick and tired of hearing the word that this actual life-and-death issue among young people loses its urgency as quickly as it rose to prominence.
                    It is important to distinguish between rude, mean and bullying so that teachers, school administrators, police, youth workers, parents and kids all know what to pay attention to and when to intervene. As we have heard too often in the news, a child's future may depend on a non-jaded adult's ability to discern between rudeness at the bus stop and life-altering bullying.

                    Everybody needs friends. You can feel very sad and lonely if you don't have someone to play with and be with - it happens to everybody sometimes.  Here are some ideas to help you in making friends and keeping friends. Having friends is also about how to be a friend and how to be a friend to yourself!

                    Did you know?

                    faceYou can be your own best friend.
                    Sounds weird?
                    Think about it.
                    Who are you with all the time? Yourself.
                    So, take some time to really get to know yourself.
                    Start by asking yourself some questions.

                    Who am I?

                    • Am I a friendly person?
                    • Am I a positive person who looks forward to each day?
                    • Am I a good listener?
                    • What am I good at?
                    • What do I like to do in my spare time?
                    • What do I like about my looks?
                    • Do I like myself?
                    You will have times when you mess up or feel ashamed about things you may have said or done, but you're still OK as a person - believe it or not that happens to everyone, even parents and teachers!
                    If you are feeling sad and can't seem to find things that you like about yourself, here is something you can do.
                    Print out the sheet at the end of this topic and ask people like mum, dad, grandma, your teacher, family friends or your friends to fill it in with you.
                    Or talk to a trusted adult about how you feel.
                    If you like yourself, others will probably like you too.
                    If someone doesn't like you don't worry - you can't expect everyone to like you. After all, you don't like everyone either, do you?
                    You can show what a nice person you are by always being pleasant and good mannered - even to people you don't like.

                    What is friendship?

                    • friendsSpending time together.
                    • Sharing ideas and treats.
                    • Having fun.
                    • Respecting each other's differences.
                    • Loyalty, sticking up for each other.
                    • Caring for each other's safety and wellbeing.
                    • Both of you working on the skills to keep your friendship going.

                    Friendship skills

                    How to be a friend!
                    • friendsTalk - be interesting, keep up with what's going on around you, eg TV, sports, music, shared interests - so that you have something to talk about.
                    • Share the conversation, so that you each get a chance to be listeners and talkers.
                    • Listen to what your friends are saying and ask questions about it.
                    • Praise your friends when they do something well.
                    • Use your manners - say please and thank you. Friends like to be pleasant to each other.
                    • Think of yourself as being a friendly person, look friendly and be friendly - and others will find you friendly.
                    • Be helpful - do things for your friends without keeping a score on who's done the most favours.
                    • Give back things you have used or borrowed from each other (this is a good idea for brothers and sisters, too).
                    • friendsBe aware of others' feelings - think before you speak. (Sometimes it is a good idea to keep your thoughts to yourself rather than upset people's feelings.)
                    • Handle conflict - by being clear about what you want and how you will compromise.
                    • Share your time with other friends.
                    • Be honest about your feelings, eg. "I don't think this is a good idea because…" But don't always try to be the leader - try out other people's ideas.
                    • Try to understand people by thinking about things from their point of view.
                    • Don't argue and get upset if your friend doesn't agree with you about something. That's O.K. She has the right to an opinion too.
                    Things you should try not to do:
                    • Don't brag about what you've got or done.
                    • No put downs - you wouldn't like it if someone did this to you.
                    • No prejudice - don't make comments about country, colour, religion or physical appearance. "If you can't find anything nice to say about someone, say nothing," is a good motto for everybody.
                    • Don't take over - let others tell their own jokes and news.
                    • Don't fight your friends' battles. You can support your friends by helping them to deal with their problems:
                      • Be a good listener
                      • Help them to stay safe.
                      • Encourage them to try.
                      • Be there when they need you to be.
                      • Help them to make good choices.
                      • Encourage them to look for help from trusted adults.
                    • Don't talk about them without their permission.
                    You are a unique (only one like you) person with lots of different sides to your character, so you can have different friends who share your different interests, eg friends at school, in your street, in sport clubs, at church, in your family, etc.
                    It's good to have a best friend but it's good to have other friends too.

                    What makes a good friend? 

                    • Having equal shares, not one always the leader and the other following.
                    • Having lots of fun together (if not, you'd better look for another friend!)
                    • Both of you working at keeping the friendship.Giving each other some space.
                    • Even best friends need some time to be alone or with other friends, so don't try to 'own' each other.
                    • Respecting each other's differences.
                    • Feeling safe talking to each other about your feelings and problems.
                    • Trusting each other and looking out for each other.
                    Being 'popular', and having real friends, is not always the same thing.
                    Most adults would think themselves really lucky to have one true friend - someone they can trust and rely on for their help and support when they need it. Real friendship lasts through good times and bad times.
                    Remember: Good friends can play with other people sometimes and still be friends.
                    This is what some children have written about their friends:
                    Friends are always nice to each other.
                    Respect your friends and they'll respect you.
                    I like friends a lot.
                    Encourage one another to be good.
                    Nice people are usually good people to be your friends.
                    Deserting your friends is very unkind.
                    Sticking up for one another is what good friends do.
                    By Matthew
                    "I like my friend James because he is funny, he shares with me and he is kind."
                    Phillip, age 7.
                    "I like making friends by helping them and sharing with them."
                    Evan, age 6.
                    "My best friend is Jessica, because she likes me."
                    Emma, age 6.
                    "My friends are Emily, Kendall and Erin. They are kind, friendly, they share, they like me and they play with me."
                    Susie, age 8.
                    "I like Basty because he is nice, he shares, he's funny and he makes good remarks."
                    "I like Kim because we both like riding and talking about horses." 
                    Becky, aged 11.

                    Doctors Kate and Kim say

                    Dr Kate and Dr Kim
                    "It's good to share the good times and the bad times with friends. You can have different friends who share your different interests. Best friends are special. Most people would say that they are friendly with lots of people but they only have a few close friends, even when they are grown up."
