Who doesn’t love a good Christmas cookie? I don’t know a kid on the planet who could resist a Christmas cookie decorating party, eating the candy and licking icing off their hands as they go. But all good things must come to an end and along with that influx of pure sugar and nasty food dyes comes a crash that is hopefully not preceded by a monster tantrum before you reach the car. A word to the wise, beware of staying too long at holiday parties with your kids. Leave while they’re behavior is still intact. If you don’t, your kid will be having a stage 5 meltdown before your very eyes and the eyes of every other guest at the party. The question is not IF your kid is going to crash, it’s WHEN? Know this going in and make your departure plan ahead of time.
