Child custody during the holiday season

Most children get excited about the holiday season - Christmas, Hanukkah, New Year's, etc. Time off from school, presents, time with family, and holiday traditions make this an extra special time for kids.

But for many families, this holiday season will look different than those in the past. Changes to holiday plans due to divorce or other changes in a family structure can be difficult for children. This is especially true when parents are recently divorced.

Here are some tips for making your child's holiday season special, despite changes due to divorce or separation:

  • Communicate: It is important to be honest and open with children about changes to holiday plans. Explain that while this holiday season will be different, it will still be special and fun.
  • Plan ahead: For parents sharing parenting time over the holiday season, it is important to plan ahead and stick to the schedule. If a schedule has not yet been determined, it is important to come to an agreement as soon as possible for the benefit of the child.
  • Focus on the children: Parents should always keep the best interests of their children in mind - but this is especially true during the holidays. Children should be given the opportunity to spend quality time with both parents over the holidays.
  • Create new traditions: While some traditions may not continue due to divorce or separation, now is the perfect time to create new and memorable holiday plans with your children. Don't forget to involve your kids in the planning.

The holidays can be less stressful and more enjoyable when parents work together and focus on the best interests of their children. Even though this holiday season may look different than years' past, it can still be an enjoyable time for everyone involved.
