Signs of a Healthy Family Holiday: How many does YOURS have?

  • No one discusses another family member behind their back

  • Gifts are appreciated, not expected

  • The work of serving, cleaning, shopping etc. is shared by all present, regardless of gender

  • We treat each other with the same respect with which we treat our friends

  • We communicate lovingly, not sarcastically

  • We refrain from advising our loved ones about how to "fix" their lives

  • We respect the rules of the host's home

  • We spend within our personal limits

  • We put the needs of the children first

Holidays can be very stressful. Make your therapy appointments a top priority. The top holiday stressors include: finances, too many activities, family time, overindulgence, being alone, and memories. These areas, while stressful year-round, peak during the holidays, leaving many people feeling "down," physically ill, or anxious by January. Finances and family togetherness are the most-reported stressors. (Mental Health America)

We Gotta Laugh

... and Dream!

How did YOU do on the quiz? Our work together involves helping you learn the skills and tools necessary to not only survive, but actually enjoy the holiday season, regardless of the behavior of others. I can show you ways to cope and overcome family dynamics through "I messages" and other communication techniques. Are you ready to take charge of your holiday season this year?
