The counselor at my school shook her head wearily. This was a busy time. Many more people are in a depressed place. Families are more worried, and kids are trying to cope with that.
A priest of friend of mine took in a big sigh. A lot of pastoral care right now. Families attacking each other verbally. People nervous about finances. Much tension.
So what is going on that is bringing these reaction?
Christmas, of course. The most wonderful time of the year.
If you are a parent, please remember that your kids need your support more than your stuff. No matter the age of your kids, at this time of the year just be happy for your family.
