CHICAGO, Nov. 24, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- On Wednesday, November 25th, nationally renowned family law attorney, and celebrated author, Jeffery M. Leving will appear on the You & Me morning show, (broadcast on WCIU-Channel 26, from 6:00 am to 9:00 am), discussing holiday tips for divorced dads. Many children will be facing the emotional and financial stresses of the holidays that often intensify parental conflict, leaving children with feelings of guilt and pain and no dad during the holidays.
Attorney Leving has compiled years of research that show the devastating effects of father absence. The presence of a father is even more vital around cornerstone events like Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa.
Leving notes that over half of the children in Chicago are born out of wedlock, and many times, have two different homes during the holidays. Leving says, "Home is where the heart is, and regardless of how the home is structured, fathers are a crucial part to building the foundation."
Attorney Leving will discuss how the holidays provide opportunities to create memories and traditions to be shared, which is an essential part to maintaining stability and comfort in tumultuous lives that can grow and flourish from a divorced home.
Challenge yourself to do what others say can't be done. Your children deserve it. So do you.
