I'm trying to help a friend whose wife recently died. He has school aged children (older elementary and middle school) and this will be their first holiday without their mother.
He's considering taking them on a trip instead of attempting a traditional holiday, but is looking for resources or information on the pros and cons of that. Does anyone have experience with this situation? Or know of books or other internet sites that might address this? Until now their holidays have always been spent at home without extended family around - just the nuclear family.
The wife/mother died unexpectedly a few weeks ago. She did not have cancer, but I'm a recent cancer survivor so I know this board is a great resource, and that's why I'm posting here.
