As we celebrate the Winter solstice in the Northern hemisphere and the Summer Solstice in the Southern, the Natural Parent Network volunteers would like to wish you and your family a very Happy Holidays, whatever holiday(s) you may celebrate.

We know that the holidays can be stressful – so much to do and make and wrap. So, in order to take ourselves a little lighter during a time when we may be trying to make everything perfect, please enjoy our generic rendition of a classic, and cherish the memories you make this season with your family!
