How divorced couples make holidays special for children



Candace Smyth, who lives in Washington and is a family mediator, shares custody of her 7-year-old daughter with her ex-husband.

Smyth's advice: "Trust your instincts. Remind yourself that your child or children matter and they just want to be loved. If they can have all of their family together, that would be their choice, most likely. Since it isn't possible, you have to do what is possible. Choose love over any resentment or anger."
