Holiday Shopping and Your Child's Behavior

Monday November 4, 2013

Believe it or not, the holidays are fast approaching. It's the time of year that always seems to fly by so fast. At least when you're an adult, that is. Ask a kid how fast the week before Christmas goes and they'll likely tell you it takes forever.

As we approach the holidays, it means most parents will spend more time in the stores hunting for gifts and shopping for groceries. That means, kids will likely spend more time in the stores as well. And when stores are crowded and holiday decorations block the aisles, it's more likely that kids will misbehave.

Whether it's the holiday season or not, don't be afraid to give your child a time out in public. It's the best way to address behavior problems and prevent future behavior problems.
