An example of the trauma that parental conflict can create for some children of divorce. This individual now views a major holiday differently because of the fighting and does not want to share a family Thanksgiving dinner again. I wish these parents would see how their behaviors are impacting their child. Will they come to the realization of how their child feels and recreate the dinner with a positive attitude and make the holiday a day to remember?
I know the filling about parents fighting. My parent are not divorced but they were really close to it. I had to watch my mom and dad fight and it’s a sad sight to say that I didn’t even talk to them for a while till it cooled down. Whats worst is on a Thanksgiving when our whole family was coming. Thanksgiving was ruined! I will never go to my family Thanksgiving dinner again. I will keep trying to avoid that day.
