Family therapist Carleton Kendrick is a licensed psychotherapist, noted national speaker, broadcast commentator and author of Take Out Your Nose Ring, Honey, We’re Going to Grandma’s: Hanging In, Holding On and Letting Go of Your Teen.
Carleton shares how we can deal with the challenges that come with the first holiday season after divorce, a death in the family or other life changes.
How To Handle Holiday Firsts
- Should I talk to my young children about grandma’s death and her not being here at holiday time? I don’t want to make them sad on the holidays.
- What should I say to my child as I send her off to be with my ex on her first holiday when we are not celebrating it as a family?
- Will celebrating both our families’ religious and ethnic traditions during the holidays confuse our children or worse, make them feel uncomfortable and not normal?
- I’m recently single with no children and I’m lost as to how, with whom or even if I should try to celebrate this holiday.
