The holiday season is recognized as a time of celebration and time spent with family and friends. But for Missouri residents who share child custody of their children, the holidays can be difficult. Some parents may spend the holiday separate from their kids because most custody agreements call for parents to take turns hosting the children over the holidays.
But with a little creativity, Missouri parents can make the most out of a less-than-ideal situation. For example, just because a parent does not have their kid on the holiday does not mean they cannot celebrate the holiday with their child. Instead, they can move the holiday up to celebrate it during their designated time. For instance, if a parent has custody the weekend before the holiday, celebrate then and include all of the regular traditions.
