SheKnows How Stepmoms Can Cope With the Holidays

SheKnows How Stepmoms Can Cope With the Holidays

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 15 /PRNewswire/ -- SheKnows.com (http://www.sheknows.com/), one of the fastest growing online destinations for women, offers the following tips on how stepmoms can deal with some of their unique challenges to cope with and enjoy the holidays.

-- Make all the plans you can as early as possible. Don't put off this discussion with your stepchildren's other family -- just knowing what is supposed to happen when can alleviate some of the stress associated with the holidays. -- Accept the fact that you won't please everyone. With so many people in your life (grandparents, in-laws, children, etc.), there will probably be someone upset with your schedule ... just give it your best shot and then follow through. -- Set the example of calm. Kids pick up on what you feel. If you feel relaxed and unhurried and calm, so will they. If you are stressed and ill and selfish, they will be, too. -- Reduce your work load. If you're feeling a lot of stress because of the extra work you have to do, choose not to do it. Buy instead of bake. Buy gift cards. Don't worry about impressing anyone. Strive for peace and serenity. Don't feel obligated to meet anyone's standards except your own. -- Determine what kind of personality and style your blended family has, and do your best to honor it. What had worked in the past, in your other family, may not work now. Create new traditions that address both family and individual needs. -- Don't forget to laugh. Hidden amid the chaos will be some moments of pure joy that the holidays always bring. Put those moments on your list of memories and take the time to enjoy the wonder of the season. About SheKnows

The growth of cloud storage, cloud-managed big data e...
