The holidays are usually a time to celebrate with friends and family. However, after a divorce, the holiday season can feel anything but merry for you and your kids. To make the holiday season more joyful, here are 4 tips you can use today to help you and your family survive your holidays following a divorce.
Put a plan and schedule in place with your ex that you both agree to stick to. Agreeing on a set schedule makes the transition smoother for kids.
Decide if gifts will be opened in separate households or in the same space. Consider adding in gifts from "Santa" to avoid competition between parents.
Work together to respect each other's boundaries and compromise if any disagreements occur.
After you have followed the above steps, have fun! Think of creative holiday-themed crafts, gifts, and activities to make memorable moments for your kids.
