Parenting Panel: How to cope with the stresses of Christmas


Today the panel looks at the stresses of Christmas.

The Parenting Place’s John Cowan and Making It On My Own's Yvonne Godfrey join Wendyl Nissen on The Long Lunch with this week's Parenting Panel.

Are you having trouble with Christmas planning? The panel has some ideas to get you through the silly-season.

For many Christmas can also be a very overwhelming time. It can be a time of great sadness if it represents a loved one's passing or trauma.

Yvonne Godfrey says a lot of the stresses all come down to poor planning and high expectations.

Don't try and pack too much in.
