Helping kids through the holidays after a divorce

| Nov 9, 2016 | Child Custody |

While many Georgians are eagerly anticipating the holiday season, you may be concerned about how you can help your children if this is the first set of holidays since you got divorced. Even if you have a clearly identified parenting plan that outlines which parent your kids will be with on what days, you know that all of your choices are not made.

How will you spend the time you have with your kids? Will you continue to do some of the activities that your family did when you were married? Psychology Today suggests that parents should consider carefully what traditions they will continue and what new traditions they may be able to create. Another option that you may be able to consider is continuing some of your kids’ most loved activities with you and your former spouse together. This, of course, should only be done if the two of you can work positively together and ensure the experience will be conflict-free for your kids.

It is also important to accept the fact that you and your children will naturally experience some feeling of loss at this time. Being sensitive to this can help your kids embrace the changes that they will be faced with and be more able to accept them.

If you would like to learn more about how you can work with a former spouse or to-be former spouse to help your kids through the holidays after your divorce, please feel free to visit the coparenting page of our Georgia family law website.
