The holiday season often brings a blend of joy and juggling when it comes to dividing time among excited extended family members eager to celebrate with your little one.
To navigate this festive challenge:
★ Start by having an honest conversation with your partner about your expectations and desires for the holiday season. Listen to their thoughts, as finding a middle ground is critical.
★ Take the time to understand the holiday traditions of both sides of the family.
★ If travel is involved, consider the logistics of visiting both family units.
★ Discuss whether visiting one family for one holiday and the other for a different celebration is viable.
★ Additionally, explore creative ways to stay connected if family members are geographically distant. Consider virtual celebrations or plan extended visits during less hectic times.
