Coparenting comes with challenges on a regular day, and the stakes feel even higher during the holidays. I was a mess in the beginning navigating holidays without my daughter. But after many years and lessons learned, we have it down and I have some tips that have worked for my family.
Coparenting is YOUR journey and it’s ok to do it your way. For example, Thanksgiving is my fave and my ex and I alternate holidays. The first year that I had Thanksgiving without my older daughter at the table, I was heartbroken and decided I couldn’t do it again. So now, on the years she’s with her dad, we do Thanksgiving over the weekend so we can all be together.
