Halloween is right around the corner and if you’re newly divorced and have young children, it’s sure to be an adjustment during this holiday for your kids. When it comes to trick-or-treating you probably went with your husband and kids throughout the neighborhood or apartment complex as a family. Just because you’re not married any longer does not mean the trick-or-treating stops.
If you can get together with your ex and bring the kids out together that would be great. If you and your ex aren’t on the best of terms, you should have the kids go trick-or-treating twice. Spend and hour in your neighborhood and ask your spouse to pick up the kids and have them spend in hour in their neighborhood. Twice the treats for the kids and the holiday still goes on! So make some plans this week with your ex if you haven’t already and put the kids first. Holidays are the times you all need to be civil and come together.
