Does the combination of chillier weather and earlier sunsets have you wanting to snuggle with your kids under a warm blanket with a cup of cocoa? If so, you’re in luck, as that’s the theme of this week’s Highlights@Home—Get Cozy! Now, getting cozy isn’t just about blankets and hot cocoa—it’s about slowing down, spending quality time together, and making warm memories. Here’s why that’s good for your kids: While they’ll remember big, momentous days of their childhood, the quiet, everyday moments where you take time to laugh, play, and have fun as a family are just as important. Getting cozy will encourage more open conversations and will build your child’s self-esteem, because children feel more positively about themselves when they feel their company is valued by others, including their parents. And when we cuddle with people we care about, our bodies release a hormone called oxytocin that has a calming effect and makes us more likely to deal better with stress. No matter how you decide to Get Cozy this week, we hope you take the opportunity to rest and unwind together.
