Ending a marriage comes with many losses – it’s why we grieve, even if we’re the ones making the decision. Every mental health professional will tell you it is critical to recognize and grieve those losses. One of those losses is the family traditions – how you celebrated each holiday, such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, Valentine’s Day, or the First day of school.  In grieving the loss of those traditions, it’s also important to create new ones, which can be important for your own emotional well-being and for your children (regardless of their age). That’s no small feat, especially when what you most feel like doing is ignoring the day altogether. So what should you do?

Life and parenting coach Mikki Gardner joins us today. Mikki works with women to help them move past the conflict and frustration of divorce to become confident co-parents and amazing examples to their children.
