How to Prevent Meltdowns During Holiday Visits

How to prevent meltdown during holiday visits.

It isn’t that I don’t enjoy family, but it is the inevitable meltdown that comes from a change in routine. There is so much food, fun, and laughter, why should my littles ever have a meltdown? Enevatibally it happens, and the day goes from tense to nightmare. I’m putting a plan in place.
