Prisma Health-Midlands Adolescent Recovery Center offers tips for coping with family during the holidays
Smiling faces surround the dinner table; happy families beam at each other as they decorate the Christmas tree. We've all seen the soft-focused commercials that show families enjoying the holiday season together in peace and harmony. But, if your family gatherings aren’t that way at all you're not alone.
For many of us, these lovely images of sharing holiday bliss with the entire family are more fantasy than reality. Sometimes sharing close quarters with your parents or adult siblings for a weekend visit can rekindle some of the family conflicts and emotions you thought were long behind you. But, there are ways to keep a smile on your face and the “fa-la-la-la-la” in your heart.
Here are some tips from Prisma Health-Midlands Adolescent Recovery Center to help you enjoy your family gatherings.
