When it comes to the holiday season, no other individuals enjoy the traditions
and celebrations like children. However, the holiday season can become
a highly emotionally taxing time for spouses, who are also parents, moving
Because our legal team truly cares about the well-being of you and your
children, we have listed and explained 3 tips to help you help your children
enjoy the holiday season even through the divorce process:
1. Create a Schedule
Although you and your ex-spouse may be experiencing difficulties as you
move through the divorce process, it is important to allow your children
to see both parents, if it is safe to do so, so they do not feel neglected
by either parent. In addition, it is important for your children to understand
that they will be able to maintain relationships and traditions with both
parents regardless of what may happen after the divorce is finalized.
2. Avoid Engaging in Conflict with Your Ex-Spouse In Front of Your Children
Remember, although children may not be able to vocalize their feelings
the way adults can, they understand when tension is high. For this reason,
it is important that you and your ex-spouse refrain from engaging in any
type of argument in front of the children. Remember, you want your children
to remember the holidays for all of the happy memories, not the times
their parents were separating.
3. Create a List of Things to be Thankful for with Your Children
The most important thing you can do for your children is to create a positive
atmosphere. To do so, grab a pen and a sheet of paper and have your children
help you make a list of things they are thankful for. You can include
anything from the food on the table, the presents in their stockings,
good health, and more. This can even be a new tradition for you and your children!
