Advice for Coping with Thanksgiving

Divorce Magazine’s writers and bloggers are offering advice to readers on how to get through Thanksgiving – and the rest of the holiday season – during and after divorce.

Divorce is one of the most stressful life-events anyone will ever experience, and the family-centered holiday season can exacerbate the stress many people are feeling both during and after divorce. Whether someone is newly separated, or whether this is another year of celebrating Thanksgiving as a single parent, men and women head to for tips on how to handle the holidays. Divorce Magazine’s team of divorce professionals – as well as bloggers who have been there, divorced that – are always happy to offer their best advice to readers.

Looking for new traditions to introduce to the family? In 7 Ways to Create New Traditions For Your Family Post-Divorce, therapist Terry Gaspard describes how recently divorced parents can create new positive holiday memories for themselves and their children. “Let’s face it, it’s a not easy for parents to let go of grudges and bad memories of past holidays,” says Gaspard. “But you can give your children the gift of hope by setting up new traditions that will ease the stress during the holiday season and bring them happiness. For instance, Ryan is a single dad who likes to cook, so he began a tradition of baking homemade bread with his two kids and delivering it to a soup kitchen sponsored by their church. This has become an important holiday ritual for Ryan and his children.”
