The key to chilled out Christmas kids

As a parent, there’s one thing you must do on Christmas day if you want to come through in one piece.

You may already have it sussed.  Indeed, many use this technique to survive your average Sunday.  But you’d be surprised how many parents haven’t yet worked out the key to sanity on the festive day.

And it’s this:  getting the children outside for fresh air and exercise.

Sorry.  You were probably expecting something a bit more ground-breaking.

But seriously.  I don’t care where you live or what the weather’s like.  Get those kids outside first thing on Christmas day and wear them out.  Put colour in their cheeks.  Run them ragged.

Once you’ve done that, nothing else matters.  The rest of the day will fall into place.
