In this holiday edition of Divorce Source Radio, divorce coach Jeanie Rule, of www.SoloMama.com, presents The Holiday Survival Guide for Divorcing or Divorced Moms.
The holidays can be a stressful time for anyone, but for a mother going through a divorce, this season can be even more challenging. Beyond financial issues, many moms face the isolation of being left out of events they used to attend, as well as facing their ex at social or school events.
Jeanie speaks of the need to be as prepared as possible for the holidays, both from a legal custody point of view and preparing for circumstances you may encounter with friends, family, and co-workers during the holiday season.
Jeanie teaches us how we can create new holiday traditions for our children and helps us understand the true meaning of the holiday season: spending time with family and friends and sharing love. The first holiday season apart from your family is always the toughest, but we learn that, in time, things will get better, and, if handled correctly, the way we go through the trials of this season can be something our kids will come to admire.
