The holidays present challenges for many people, even if they are happily married – but they present special challenges for divorced and divorcing parents, no matter how amicable the divorce was.
Helping Your Kids and Helping Yourself During the Holidays
There are plenty of ways to set a great example for your children during the holiday season, including:
- Remaining flexible (but having a backup plan)
- Being kind and generous
- Keeping your word
- Building new family traditions
There’s a great article on Nolo that explains each of these points in detail.
There will probably be a few bumps in the road, but if you think positively, you can use the winter holidays as an opportunity to be a positive role model for your children.
