Relatives – Single Parent Style
Your relationships with your relatives will change.
Your family relationships are most important to you and your children right now in your lives. Whether you believe it or not!
You and your children will become closer and more involved with some relatives and further away and less involved with some relatives.
Some relatives feel they must choose sides after a divorce.
Be respectful of your Ex’s relatives.
Your children won’t understand why certain relationships have changed.
Try to stay as close to your relatives as is possible. If not for your sake, then for your children’s sake!
Children want to belong, especially when it comes to their family and relatives.
“Other things may change us, but we start and end with the family.”
“Call it a clan, call it a network, call it a tribe, call it a family:
Whatever you call it, whoever you are, you need one.”
“In family life, love is the oil that eases friction, the cement that binds closer together, and the music that brings harmony.”
