During the First Post-Divorce Holiday Season, Show Kindness Toward the Other Parent and Child for the Child’s Best Interest
During. the Collaborative. Divorce process, you and your spouse worked closely with the team to develop a shared parenting-plan for the holiday season. But, now that the holidays are here, the reality is that the carefully outlined plan will mean that your child may not spend some of the holidays with you, driving up the possibility of pain and heartache because you miss your children. At this time, it is important to remember to put extra effort into showing kindness and empathy toward your ex-spouse, and to your child, for the child's best interest.
