Create holiday traditions with your kids after divorce

The holiday season is here, and this can present a challenge for people who have recently divorced. If you have children, they are likely looking to you to find out what's going to happen for the holidays. The good news is that now is the time that you can create the traditions that can serve you and your kids for many years to come.

Understand the points to cover in a parenting plan

Parents who go through divorce need to think about what's best for the children, but this isn't always easy when emotions are running rampant. You should try to separate your feelings about the marriage from your decisions about child custody so that you can ensure you are making decisions based on what the kids need.

Addressing your child's divorce concerns may reduce their anxiety

Stress and anxiety can lead to problems sleeping for anyone, but the situation might be more serious for children who learn of their parents' divorce. As a parent, you have to try to help them to work through the issues that they face so that they can get sufficient rest. Kids can't function properly without enough sleep. Eventually, the lack of sleep might impact their immune systems and their abilities to learn.

Everything doesn't change after divorce if you have kids

When you go through a divorce, you need to know that there are major life changes coming. If you have children with your ex, some aspects of your life might not change as much as you think. One of these is that you will still have to remain in contact with your ex.

Passive aggressive behavior makes child custody difficult

Dealing with a passive-aggressive ex makes a child custody issue challenging. Instead of being able to just tackle issues related to the kids, you have to go in circles about the matters for a while. This can make the situation more tenser than it has to be. Both parents need to think about their actions when they are in this type of situation.

Changes in communication with children during divorce

Divorce can bring some major changes between parents and adults. Everyone in the situation has to try to learn how to thrive despite the new circumstances. One thing that might suffer some is your ability to communicate with your children. This is difficult to handle because it might be a significant difference from what was happening before the split.

Help your children to adjust to the changes divorce brings

Now that school has started, your children are likely going through some major emotions. The new year and your divorce can weigh heavily on them. It might be a lot for them to handle right now, but you can help them with this so that they can thrive despite the difficult season they are in. Giving them the skills now to cope with change can benefit them throughout life.

Fight only chosen battles with an uncooperative ex

You have probably seen stories on the internet and television about how divorced parents, and sometimes their new spouses, are working as a team to raise their children. Even though these stories are becoming more popular, there are still some parents who have challenging relationships with exes while they are trying to raise the children.

Set the stage for your children to thrive despite divorce

It is often said that you can't move forward until you address the past. This applies to many areas of your life. One of these is your divorce and child custody. How amicable your divorce is can have a direct impact on the child custody relationship you will have moving forward.

Parenting plans for long-distance parenting situations

Many parents who divorce stay in the same area so they can be involved in their child's life. There are also times when one parent has to move away, which can force the child to have a long-distance relationship. There are many things that can help the child in these cases, so you need to think carefully about what is going to work for your kids.
