Parents need to recognize their own reactions to divorce and keep boundaries around their emotions. How parents handle being on their own during the holidays will impact how their children respond to the divorce. Don't be babies, let your children be kids -- you be grown-ups!
It is hard to see all of my friends whose parents are together, and I have to remind myself that I am not like them and it is not my fault. All I see during the holidays is big families celebrating Christmas together, while my family will never be like that again.
