HOW TO COPE WITH CHRISTMAS AFTER DIVORCE OR SEPARATION

Try and plan arrangements well in advance.  Try and discuss matters amicably with your ex to ensure the children get the opportunity to spend time with both parents over the Christmas period.  Have regard to the wishes and feelings of the children; however, try and ensure that they do spend quality time with your ex.

Consider whether the proposal that you are putting forward would be one that you would be happy to accept next year.  If it is, then alternate the arrangements year by year.

Talk positively about your ex, or not at all.  Find the generous side of your nature and encourage your children to buy a special gift for your ex, or enable them to have money so that they can purchase an appropriate gift.

Remember that Christmas is only one day of the year.  If you are not having contact with the children on Christmas Day, make Boxing Day, or another day, just as special.

Enjoy your time with the children whenever it is.  Focus on the children and try and avoid all conflict.
