The holiday season is usually exciting — something that families look forward to every year. Unfortunately, the season can be turned upside-down when you and your family are struggling to adjust to a new divorce or separation.
Surviving the Holidays After Your New Jersey Divorce
First and foremost, it is crucial for parents to practice patience during the hectic celebrations. Family traditions, decorations, and preparations can feel overwhelming when you are attempting to celebrate without your former partner. Be patient with yourself and your children, and try to remain flexible with your plans. Some former partners make the decision to double-up on holidays after a divorce. There is no set rule that demands family celebrations must occur on the exact date, so many families decide to celebrate twice on different days to ensure that each partner can spend time with their children celebrating.
Parents may also stress and worry about the gift-giving aspect of the holidays, and divorce can put a significant strain on personal finances. Always remember that the price tag on gifts has no bearing on a child’s well-being. Time, love, and effort are the most important things that a parent can give to their child.
