Here I’ll share some of the most common challenges during the festive period whether a parent of a newborn (coming from a mum who gave birth on xmas day I know this one well!) or an active toddler/preschooler, along with some suggestions which may help. These are from my experience as a parent and from others I have supported, there is never a right way , or the best way to deal with challenges or how to parent. These are not rules! Remember to listen to your parenting gut instinct . Only you know your child, your family situation and your journey, use those to help you do what is best for your family
