Christmas with a blended family

From My wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Family holidays can be stressful for families that have just experienced change, such as divorce, blending of a family or new siblings.

It’s important to be aware and to keep the lines of communication open between you and your child.

They will be struggling with a pre conceived ideal of what Christmas should be; being as it was before.

They will not emotionally understand why things have to change and often those hurt feelings will come up right in the middle or just after a family event.

Be aware of their telltale sensory signs of stress, and help them through the transition with patience and understanding.
