If you’re going through a divorce, it has nothing to do with your kids enjoying their summer. As parents, you both have to rise above your differences when it comes to the children.
Don’t Let Your Kids Divorce the Summer
Now that school has ended for the summer break, your kids will be around the house much more. So keep a lid on the tension surrounding the divorce even though it may be difficult to do at times. This is important because you want your children to enjoy the carefree atmosphere of summer. Both parents need to keep this in mind. The divorce is tough on kids, but making them live it every day emotionally with you is not fair.
Here are seven ways to make sure your children have a wonderful summer despite the divorce.

Spring has arrived, so have you begun “spring cleaning” yet? Sometimes, cleaning isn’t just washing down the outdoor patio furniture and setting it up. It can be an emotional cleaning and a clearing out of some of the people in your life. After a divorce, it’s a time to think out with the old and in with the new — a new way of life, a new mind-set and a new beginning in more ways than one!
Below are some ways for divorcee’s to spring clean for a new season and a new life!
*Rid Your Life of Negativity: I try to make it a policy to move away from negative people. They will only bring you down. You’re going up, up and up!
*Clean Your Diet: Try to do a spring cleaning of your diet. Lots of green vegetables are key to staying young and energetic. Eat healthier today.
*Early to Bed, Early to Rise: You will be more productive if you get more out of your day. If you’re a late night person, switch to being an early morning one. You will feel better and make more things happen.
*Clean Your Habits: If you have any bad habits left over from your marriage give them a spring cleaning! Spending too much money at the mall? Not recycling enough? Smoking still after the divorce? Try your best to move forward in a new way and recognizing the things that need adjustments is an imporant step.
*Focus On Your Future: Spring clean your goals and write down new ones, setting them in motion for the future you deserve!
Today is officially the first day of spring. Many of us are probably happy that the weather feels spring-like in many areas of the country as well.
Spring represents a new start for nature and you. I just wrote an article for MORE Magazine about how spring can be sprung for divorcee’s. It’s a great time to begin doing all of the things you have been wanting to. The time to start is today. Take a look at how you can “spring into action” by clicking here.
Spring is officially here, which means it’s time for new beginnings (and allergies…just kidding). If you have been recently divorced and it’s your first spring by yourself, I suggest springing into action immediately! This is truly one of the best times of the year, so embrace this time as a fresh start.
To mark spring and your new beginning, I recommend buying some flowers for yourself. No need to buy anything fancy. Something that looks spring-like from the local deli or supermarket will do. Put something in your home that feels fresh, happy and will brighten your day! You survived the divorce, so you need to take a moment to smell the roses…or tulips. Here’s to you for having the strength to move on!
