The holidays are a wonderful time of year. There are so many fun and festive opportunities to get together to celebrate the season with your family or community. It’s no wonder it’s the favorite time of year for most children. But for parents of kiddos struggling with any number of behavioral health or developmental issues such as anxiety, ADHD, or Autism, the holidays can be an extra stressful time.
