When you hear the word ‘tradition’, what do you think of? Of course, I immediately think about Fiddler on the Roof and the word ‘TRADITION’ booming in song! A very old memory indeed, but isn’t that what traditions are all about? Old and familiar ways of doing things…a place to go for comfort and routine.
When it comes to the holidays, ‘tradition’ is truly the essence of the season. We pass down lots of past family practices like; putting the same ornaments on the tree, using the same tablecloth and decorations, or cooking the same dishes and special treats.
Tradition is defined as "the transmission of customs or beliefs from generation to generation, or the fact of being passed on in this way." And just like routines, traditions offer safety and structure to our kids – an opportunity to pause, take stock and spend time together - something families can benefit from all year round.
As Parents, it's inevitable that we have to help our kids weather "The Storm" of conflict!
