When our older kids are home for the holidays, it’s easy to get excited about having everyone together. But our high expectations can sometimes lead to disappointments if not managed well.

So give them some space, avoid instruction and just enjoy being with them. Second, know that they may want to spend time with friends also. So let them know up front the things you want to do with them. So here are some ways to enjoy your kids being home for the holidays.
