“The best of all gifts around any Christmas tree: the presence of a happy family all wrapped up in each other.” ~Burton Hillis
The sentiment of this quote is beautiful and warm. Except, in each unique family it may not always apply. If you’ve adopted a child or sibling set and notice escalating behavioral challenges during the holidays ~ there may be a tangible explanation (such as the child being taken into protective custody near a holiday). It may also be caused by something that goes quite a lot deeper.
If challenges are overshadowing your holidays ~ please contact your social worker for support. Our Chrysalis House Social Workers want your holidays to be merry and bright and are here to help!
You may also find this resource helpful in understanding how previous traumas may be impacting your child’s holidays.
Please accept our Merry Holiday wishes ~ from the Chrysalis House Family to yours!
