With Christmas approaching, many families, particularly ones where the parents are separated/divorced, struggle with how to privilege their childrens’ needs during this time. In a podcast, based loosely on an academic seminar at the Child and Family Practice, Dr. Reenee Singh speaks to the Parenting Expert, Dr. Kathy Weston about the impact of parental conflict, separation and divorce on children’s mental health and wellbeing, and how to help children construct coherent stories about this event. She focuses on how the child’s needs are paramount in sharing Christmas time between separated and divorced parents and their families. She points to resources that might be helpful to professionals and parents, during this process.
