This Month's Issue

This December, we're celebrating the holidays but also appreciate this can be a stressful time of year. 

Our feature, Helping Our Stressed-Out Kids Cope, lays out a game plan for managing meltdowns in our children, but also provides key advice for coping with your own stress as a parent when navigating those hot-button moments with your teen ... or those long holiday register lines.

If one of your sanity-saving strategies for the holidays is reducing the stress of shopping and spending too much on presents, have we got the gift guide for you: These genius little gifts will spread big joy, and for less than $25 each.

Our annual holiday arts guide is jam-packed with steals and splurges, from the various and sundry Nutcrackers, Christmas Carols and Nights Before Christmas. 

Happy holidays to you and yours!
