• Wondering how they’re going to make it through the holidays

    • I’m so sad...no, mad...no, embarrassed...no, angry...no, resentful!

    • Can I just crawl into a cave with a tray of cookies and forget the holidays this year?

    • My kids are with my Ex this year...what am I going to do without them?

    • What do I do when I see all the perfectly happy families on social media in tacky matching Christmas pjs...and I just want that to be me and my family?

  • Agonizing over having to share their kids with their Ex for the holidays

    • I don’t want to give up any time with my kids.

    • What will I do if they’re not with me?

    • What do I say to other people when they ask why my kids aren’t with me for the holidays?

    • What if my Ex gives our kids better gifts than I do?

  • Worried about how their kids are going to manage the holidays with the divorce

    • How do I manage my child’s emotions about the holidays being different this year?

    • How do I make things as normal as possible?

    • Maybe I should just buy my kids a ton of gifts to make up for the fact that things aren't going to be like they used to be..

  • Struggling to figure out and navigate all.the.boundaries.

    • What do I do about holiday cards?

    • Do I still have to buy gifts for my Ex in-laws?

    • What do I say at holiday parties when people ask why my Ex and I are no longer together?

  • Develop your holiday plan (AHEAD of time)

    Having a plan IN PLACE lets you know what to expect so that you can start wrapping your head around it.

  • Get your boundaries ROCK SOLID

    Get clear about all the things: how you’re going to handle holiday parties, holiday cards, gift-giving, etc.

  • Have your one-liner ready to go for when people ask you about the divorce or ask where your kids are during the holidays.

    No more fumbling over your words!

  • Get crystal clear on your triggers and develop a strategy for how you are going to minimize them.

    Is your mom nagging you again about the divorce and how "unfortunate" it is that you guys "just couldn't work it out"? Have your calm comeback ready to go.

  • Create a self-care plan tailored to meet YOUR emotional and physical needs.

    Whether that means a Netflix binge, a yoga class or some axe throwing (with a certain somebody's face on the bullseye)...you'll create a go-to plan for the especially hard days.
