PARENTS CAN REDUCE STRESS THIS HOLIDAY SEASON BY GIVING THE GIFT OF TIME by Jim Fay For many American families, this holiday season will be much different than others in recent memory. The current economic slowdown likely will affect many people, from the lack of a holiday bonus or overtime pay to the loss of a job. But tight times don’t mean your holidays have to be ruined. Less spending money can encourage families to escape the materialistic view of the holidays and connect with what kids really want from their parents: Time. This is one of a child’s most basic human needs.
