The September school holidays are nearing and my kids are looking forward to staying at home with oodles of free time on their hands. While the holidays are the time for my little ones to enjoy and relax as they please, for me, they’re an indication to pull up my socks and brace myself for the upheaval in store.
Though the initial days of their break seem hunky dory, over the course of the holidays my angels manage to turn the entire house upside down with their antics. They constantly rant about how bored they are, spend hours with their eyes glued to the TV set and when they can’t come to a consensus on what to watch, they fight like cats and dogs. I, in turn, have to struggle to make peace, but in vain. Sounds familiar?
Well then, here are five tips that have helped me enjoy stress-free holidays with my kids that might come in handy to you:
Establish A Holiday Schedule
Enrol Kids In Activity Classes
Keep Their Creative Juices Flowing
Involve Them In Household Chores
Spend Quality Time
Though these useful tips ought to keep the kids engaged and you stress-free during the holidays, there surely will be moments of confusion and chaos. During times like this, I let myself loose and embrace the craziness along with my teeny brats. We all can do with a little bit of fun and madness in our lives, don’t you agree?
