In America, there is a 50 percent divorce rate. This means that almost 43 percent of children are being raised in a household that has to deal with co-parenting. Co-parenting is when two parents share the responsibility of raising a child. For the sake of your and your child’s happiness, it is important to work on co-parenting during the holiday season.
Communication Is Key
Without good communication, it is going to be nearly impossible to get on the same page with your ex about family plans during the holidays. It is also very important to have communication with your child about what they want this holiday season. You need to let your ex and your child know far in advance what your plans are for this holiday season.
Remember, don't plan too many things that you just want to do. If you overschedule, you will find that your ex and child may feel as though they do not have a say in what's happening.
If you are planning on changing your plans at all, you need to let your ex know as soon as possible. Even though you will have your ideas of what your holiday should be, you need to compromise with your ex.
Remember, during the holiday season, things can easily change. You need to be willing to be flexible with these types of changes.
After any hard breakup, it can be difficult to deal with your ex. However, for the sake of your child, it is important to think positively and try to be kind to your ex. This can also make things so much easier for you during the holiday season.
There are already so many stressful things to deal with during the holidays. It isn't necessary to add to your already overly stressed situation.
Kids Come First
The holiday season is going to be very hard for your kids, too. Dealing with this new change is going to be very difficult or them. You need to make sure that all of your plans start with your kids in mind. What is going to make this holiday season easier for them? This should be your first concern always.
