Last year we posted a blog about 10 ways to practice positive childhood experiences (PCEs) during the holiday season. By popular demand, we created a new resource based on the blog that can be downloaded and easily shared. These holiday tips were adapted from our original 10 ways to promote positive experiences fact sheet. Through this seasonal resource, we want to share that no matter what or how you celebrate, there are big and small moments to practice PCEs and promote access to the Four Building Blocks of HOPE. These tips share themes of support, connection, and tradition.
We all need support, whether mentally, emotionally, or physically. Reaching out for help through family members, friends, or event services in your community can help make this time of year easier and filled with more joy. Through our support networks we can build lasting relationships, share in the benefits of our own emotional growth with the children in our lives, and provide a warm environment filled with emotional safety and love.
