Divorce can be tough on kids, and the holiday season can make it even worse. That’s why “Dealing With Divorce” host Nan Cohen decided to give her weekly radio program a focus on how divorced parents can cope with the holidays and make it a more joyful season for their children.
“Dealing With Divorce” airs on KQV-AM (1410) 7:30 p.m. Thursdays.
This Thursday, attorney Pam Collis will talk about the legal aspects of custody agreements during the holidays.
Family therapist Judith Patz, along with Ms. Collis, will explore emotional issues and discuss ways to keep both kids and their divorced parents happy on Dec. 16.
On Dec. 23, child psychiatrist Rodney Williams will talk about the importance of having friends around when family members are absent during the holiday season and keeping a positive attitude.
