3 things to say “no” to this holiday season

The holidays are supposed to be a fun time. They’re supposed to be a time when you just chill and relax with the family.

However, as South African as we are, we’re constantly drawn to things that stress us out. This holiday season, say no.

Here are 3 things that you should say “no” to if you want to have a stress-free holiday season.

1. Going out at all during peak traffic season

Going out during the holidays is an extreme sport. Even when there are things that you have to do during the daytime you’re very likely to get stuck in traffic when you’re headed back home. Then imagine going out at night. Whatever time that you leave the house, you’re probably going to get to that party 2/3 hours later. As for Christmas shopping, this is your reminder to go and buy what you need to go and buy now.

2. Spending all your money

During the holidays it’s very easy to get caught up in the FOMO, which is basically the fear of missing out. You need to understand that we’re in South Africa, and this city is as overpriced as overpriced gets. If you want to be a part of everything, there’s no way that your savings from this year will see 31st night, not even to talk of the new

3. Doing drugs

The fact that it’s the holiday season doesn’t give you a free pass to be reckless. The police are usually extraordinarily vigilant during the holiday season and if you’re caught with drugs or any ‘illegal substances you’re in for a world of hurt. All of your Christmas money is going to end up being paid as a bribe, or you’re going to end up in jail.

4 brilliant ways social media use can benefit your kids

Back in the day, debates, speeches, events were considered the ‘only’ ways for a child to showcase their inner creativity and talent, even if in a limited realm. With the advancement of social media, kids today have a lot more scope to present and even hone their talent, express themselves in a way they deem fit, and even work around with a wider audience. Podcasts, fandoms, creative communities and many online courses grant kids the freedom to express themselves freely, as they like.

When should you give kids cellular access then?

Even with all the positive benefits, do remember that social media and phone use for the kids can be a tricky road to navigate, for there can be just as many negatives. With the times changing, kids today have access to phones a lot earlier than their seniors. Again, while it’s a purely personal decision to make, it’s important to assess your child’s maturity, cognitive skills, sensitivity and problem-solving skills before giving them access.

Should you monitor their online presence?

This, again, can be a difficult decision to make. The important thing to keep in mind is trust. Snooping in on your child’s phone can also trouble your relationship with them. A wiser stance would be to work out a deal where you allow them the freedom to have a separate online presence, not frequently check or snoop, but also be in the know of the online friends they talk to, the content that they share online. Have a freewheeling chat with them to follow social media protocols, keep some sites off-limits, and be safe on the internet. For your own reassurance, consider using parental locks, or restricting usage where necessary.
