Getting Through the School Holidays!

Getting Through the School Holidays!

christmas, stress, holidays, break, summer, With the pressure of Christmas shopping and the emotional and financial strain it puts on parents and caregivers, parents are looking for ways to amuse their little treasures that don’t break the budget. This could be the pool or the beach, or some of the many board games that you already have. Children will not have a Vitamin D deficiency if they do not play in the sun. With our high levels of UV Radiation most children will get their dose of Vitamin D even when they are in filtered shade.

Managing children’s behaviour can be difficult for parents when it is a hot summer day as parents may feel pressured by their children to go to the beach or pool at the wrong time of the day. Remember to go before 10.00 in the morning or after 4.00 in the afternoon-slip, slop slap.

When children exercise endorphins are released; these chemicals are hormone-like substances that are produced in the brain, this in turn causes a general state of wellbeing. In just 10 minutes of exercise children will feel vigorous, their mood would have improved, and they will feel happy, and be hungry – too hungry to argue with their brothers and sisters.
