YIELDS:
18

PREP TIME:
0 HOURS 10 MINS

TOTAL TIME:
4 HOURS 0 MINS

INGREDIENTS:
1 1/2 sugar, divided
1 c. fresh cranberries
2 (3.4-oz.) packets cranberry flavored Jell-O
1 c. vodka

1. In medium saucepan over medium heat, combine cup of sugar and cup water and stir until sugar dissolves completely. Let cool 20 minutes, then mix in cranberries until coated.

2. Using a slotted spoon, transfer cranberries, tapping away any excess syrup, into a large resealable plastic bag. Add remaining 1 cup sugar, seal, and shake until cranberries are completely coated.

3. Spread out cranberries on a baking sheet and refrigerate until cranberries are completely cool and sugar hardens, 25 minutes.

4. Bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add Jell-O mix and whisk until completely dissolved, then remove from heat and stir in vodka and 1 cup cold water.

5. Let cool 2 to 3 minutes.

6. Place 18 plastic shot glasses on a baking sheet and pour in Jell-O mixture until each is full.
Refrigerate until set, about 3 hours.

7. Top each shot with 1 or 2 sugared cranberries.

If you would like to garnish, you can cut a little piece of rosemary and add a couple cranberries rolled in honey then dip in sugar. Then place them on top of the jello shots.

Notes: To make "virgin" jello shots, pour some of the jello into cups before adding the vodka.

But what can you do as a parent to get things back on track?

A perfect solution is to let the teenager calm down first so that the emotional distress goes down. From there, the teenager can start thinking rationally again, and you can work your way out of the crisis through a discussion after that.

Understand that there is nothing you can do to control the emotions that teenagers go through, and neither can they. You just have to let them run their course, and eventually, they'll settle on their own.

The melatonin is also linked to physical activity, hormone levels, alertness, body temperature, digestive activity, and immune functions. Thus, light-sensitive people experience a direct impact on sleep patterns and energy levels.

Another reason why we experience a disruption in our sleep patterns is the use of artificial light. This light confuses our natural body rhythms if we’re absorbing both light types at the same time.

Because of this, you’re likely to feel irritated and perplexed due to exposure of the mixture of two light sources. You can even feel frustrated, unable to relax, or deep sleep.

But it’s very important not to put the focus on the fact that the teenager is upset. Instead, let them feel or know that they have a right to be upset, as that is the only way to get to a point where a solution to the problem would be welcome or even useful.

Overreacting will only make the crisis worse. So, when your teenage child is having a breakdown, it is not time to issue threats or ultimatums. Trying to offer solutions, however well-intended, will not help either.

Your child is not broken, he/she is slowly recreating who they are so that they can finally mature.

So, when you see a teen in a crisis, the first thing you should do is calm them down. Everything else comes later.
