Holiday Tips for Single Parents – Tip 16
Holidays can create anxieties and conflicts for single and divorced parents. The following suggestion may help you better manage and enjoy your holiday season.
Find fulfilling activities for yourself. If your kids are going to spend the holidays with your ex-spouse, consider what will be the most meaningful way to spend your own time. If you have been looking for a break for a long time, use the spare time to rest and relax. Read a book, cook a favorite dish, listen to Christmas carols or do whatever helps you to unwind. However if you do not wish to be on your own, catch up with old friends and arrange to meet them but stay away from families with kids if you feel you are going to miss your own children. Again you could use your time and resources to volunteer at a charity of your choice. Find out what would make you happiest and then go ahead with those plans.
