Christmas decorations and lights are up and the shops are playing Christmas music to try and get us all in the festive spirit! 

Whilst some think it is far too early to be thinking about Christmas, in respect of arrangements for children over the Christmas period, the sooner this is arranged, the better. 

For separated parents, the arrangements over Christmas can often be difficult to think about an agree. Therefore, I always suggest it is better to start thinking about this as early as possible and try an agree a routine. One routine that can work well is to try to agree to alternate Christmas Day.
