The holiday season isn’t fun for every family. Not every household has a stereotypical cookie-cutter family. And that doesn’t mean a happy holiday season is out of reach for such families, but it does mean that the holidays can put a bit of strain on them. Perhaps your family is experiencing this situation, and you might be a little bit worried about the holidays. You may be divorced from the other parent of your children and won’t have your children on the day of a major holiday this season, which can be very difficult. Even divorced parents who remain on good terms can struggle to deal with this time of year. Co-parenting is a 24/7 struggle all year long, but it can be particularly tough during December. You might even feel pressured to work hard to keep your children happy and create some semblance of a conventional family for them over the holiday season.
