In just a couple of short weeks, families across Pennsylvania and throughout the United States will gather to break bread and give thanks as the official 2016 holiday season kicks off. While typically considered a happy and celebratory time, under even the best of circumstances, the holidays can be stressful.
For couples and families who are experiencing a recent separation or divorce, this holiday season is likely to be an especially difficult time. This is particularly true in cases where a soon-to-be or recently divorced couple has younger children. While there are no official rules for how to navigate the uncomfortable encounters and varied challenges this holiday season may bring, keeping your children and their well-being and best interests in mind is a good place to start.
