Loss of Family
The family breakup means the
family has to restructure. It is rare that
divorce is an amicable arrangement and often your
parents' emotions will be running high. When your parents are
feeling this way, it may be hard for them to see beyond their
own hurt, anguish or anger. They may want to try and protect you
from the stress of the situation, resulting in you feeling excluded
and actually adding to your stress. Whatever has occurred to cause
the breakup, both parents are important to you and should continue
to play an important role in your life. Divorce does not have
to mean the end of a family.
Birthdays and Holidays
Holidays and birthdays after a divorce
can be one of the most difficult things to deal with, especially
in the first year when you'll have the first birthday, the first
Christmas, the first anything spent without one of your parents.
As each year passes it becomes easier, with you and your family
much more comfortable and finding new ways to celebrate.
Remember, your parents have divorced
each other, they haven't divorced you, they are still your parents!
