How To Best Deal With A Separation Near The Holidays

While you may feel like you do not want to spend another day with your partner, it is likely that the idea of separation and divorce has been looming for quite some time. So, consider how long you have been working towards this decision when you consider the difference a few weeks could make in your child’s life. Letting your child know that you will be splitting up right at the holidays, will cause your child to associate the holiday season this year, and for years to come, with the end of your marriage and their family as they know it. Unless it is impossible, wait until the new year, and let them enjoy their holiday season, and these last wonderful memories of you as a complete family unit. If you look at the holidays as being about their needs above all else, it will help you to make it through them as well.
