Christmas After A Divorce or Death In The Family

Alyson's Blog

The first Christmas after the death of a parent is extremely emotional for children. Because the holiday is a special time for the family, it evokes so many cherished memories. The absence of a parent during this time makes grief just that much more intense. The same applies to the first Christmas after a separation or divorce.

Tip of the week

Baby, It’s Cold Outside – Activity List

This time of year often brings families and friends together in celebration where we finally take the time to catch up. We seek out a few hours to curl up by the fire with a hot chocolate and a good book. We might even sit around the table and play board games with our kids. The cold chill in the air seems to drive us inside, where we hunker down and hibernate for the winter. But we need a good balance, right? Especially with all the extra yummy food and treats that come along with the holidays.
