Weekly episodes of Parenting RoundAbout will start in January 2014, but we couldn't miss the chance to chat about the holidays and the sleighload of stress, anxiety, and hyperactivity they bring. Join About.com experts Terri Mauro (specialchildren.about.com), Catherine Holecko (familyfitness.about.com), Katherine Lee (childparenting.about.com), and Amanda Morin (kidsactivities.about.com) for a discussion of the ho-ho-hos and oh-no-nos of holiday parenting. First, we'll talk about tweaking holiday traditions so that they work for you and your family. Then we'll look at the sort of thing that gets people put on a parent's naughty list. (Relatives who give young kids 1,000-piece jigsaw puzzles and noisy toys? We're lookin' at you.) Finally, we'll share what's going on holiday-wise in each of our expert topics. Take a break from shopping and baking and stressing and listen in!
