When the holiday season is in full effect, children can become overly eager and anxious about all the exciting things around them. Because of this they may make some poor behavior choices because they have difficulty controlling how they are feeling.
The holidays are a busy time so it can be difficult for parents to stop unwanted behaviors before they start. However, due to the overwhelming environmental stimuli, children need prompting to help them maximize good behavior.
To prevent potential behavior problems, give children clear rules and expectations for the holidays and events that you attend. Also, work on catching them making good behavior choices and compliment them as they happen.
