Kids don’t care to sit and chat forever–but during the meal, try to draw them into the conversation by bringing up a favorite topic of theirs. Or ask about a special holiday memory. It can be fun for everyone!

Dec. 20            Day 8   Full Inclusion—after all, it’s Christmas.

Be sure to include your child in the discussion at the holiday dinner table. An easy way to do this is to bring up one of his or her favorite topicsallowing your child to chime in. Another way is to go around the table and ask for each person’s favorite Christmas memory or whatever. Of course, let your child know you’re going to do this in advance—so he can mentally prepare.

LET THE SLEIGH BELLS JINGLE!
