We welcome Maria Vercimak with Catalpa Health to help us navigate through some tough situations this holiday season.
As Christmas nears, many children have a list of gift ideas, but they don’t always get everything on the list — which can be upsetting. Maria gives tips and offers conversation tools on handling some of the disappointments kids may feel during the holidays.
Maria also gives an insight to handling the magic of Santa Claus. It recently made headlines — A substitute teacher in New Jersey told a classroom of first graders that Santa wasn’t real. This resulted in a lot of confused children and some unhappy parents.
Maria explains how to gently talk to our children about respecting different traditions families share, no matter how different it is.
