Traditionally, the holidays are a time for family and friends to gather together to celebrate the season and make lasting memories.
While this year’s festivities may look a bit different, Devereux Center for Resilient Children Director Susan Damico says that doesn’t have to stop you and your family from finding creative ways to make the season special.
“Whatever holidays you and your family celebrate, focus on what you can do, rather than what you cannot do,” Damico said. “You may not be able to bake cookies or pies in-person with family or friends, but you can bake together on video chat."
Focus on the gift of giving
The holidays are a time for giving, and Devereux Center for Resilient Children Director Susan Damico encourages parents to teach children the importance of giving back to the community.
“Show your child there is more joy in giving than receiving,” Damico noted. “Help them make holiday cards for healthcare workers and first responders who are on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19. Create care packages for local homeless shelters, hospitals or nursing homes, and include handwritten notes from your child.”
