The holidays are a time when people are planning to gather with family and loved ones, share good meals together and even exchange gifts. However, it can also be an emotionally charged time of year, and it can be stressful for Tennessee parents who are sharing custody of children. This is one reason why it is so important to have a thorough and clear parenting plan in place.
Children benefit when allowed to maintain a strong relationship with both parents after divorce. This probably means sharing time with both parents during the holidays as well. You may have to set aside your own temporary emotions for the benefit of your kids, but this can be a good way to avoid custody disputes during this busy and important time of year.
