The holidays are here and they can be fun, festive, and happy but also stressful, frustrating and sad. There can be a lot of pressure and endless to-do lists that rob us of the joy of the season. Fortunately there are ways to shift things to a more positive experience. Mighty Parenting host Sandy Fowler discusses these shifts with John Sovec. John lends insights into how we end up stressed and unhappy. Then he’s talks about how you can reduce holiday stress for yourself and your family while creating a holiday to remember.

One of the best ways to help kids learn to use cell phones in a healthy way is to model healthy smartphone habits ourselves. You can:
1. Be intentional
2. Set boundaries
3. Make a usage schedule for yourself
Then talk to your child about how they can do the same. Have a conversation about what would work for them and things they can do to support themselves in developing those habits.
And if you want amazing support in helping your child develop those healthy habits, get a Troomi phone so you can set up appropriate access to everything on the phone right in the parent portal. Troomi lets you guide your child in learning to use smartphones is a safe and healthy way with plans that grow with your child.
