At Kern County Family Magazine, we know it’s not always easy to do all that’s needed during the holidays. The days are long but the years are short. Whether you’re wrapping gifts, stuffing stockings, purchasing holiday food, cooking, cleaning or overseeing it all, know that what you’re doing is enough. And your child sees it all as just right, the childhood Christmases only you could make in the way that best fits your family.
If your child could share the perfect recipe for a loving parent, she or he would describe you in this way.

• 1 tsp. of understanding

P.S. There are no perfect parents but every parent can make a perfect moment with their child. Our Christmas wish for you is that you create the happiest memories ever this holiday season.
