Many families are going through a difficult time this holiday season. For the first time mom and dad are living in separate residences and there is tension in the air. In many cases divorce proceedings have yet to take place and may not occur at all. This is a particularly difficult time for the children, so remember that when you gather with them this holiday season.
Use this time to reflect on how life will be if things continue on this path. Is everyone better off this way, or is there a better way? Whatever you decide try to take your own selfish interests and put them on the back burner for a moment. The decisions you make will change your family structure forever. Maybe that is the way it should be. However, you decide to proceed, keep in mind that your spouse is the other parent of your child or children. No matter what issues divide you, always do your best to build up that parent in your children’s eyes.
