Prioritizing children during the holidays

As the winter holidays approach Virginia parents may have lingering concerns about how they and their co-parents will work together to create positive and loving celebrations for their shared kids. The holidays can bring out both the best and the worst in people and when divorced parents cannot see eye to eye, it can be their children who suffer. Prioritizing kids during the holidays can be a good way to keep life civil for everyone coping with a divorce or post-divorce situation.
