Managing Difficult Family Relationships During the Holidays


This course is a previously recorded webinar I did in December 2020 on managing difficult family relationships during the holidays. I received a high influx of questions on balancing family expectations during the holidays and created this course based on the in-depth questions about varying family situations that surround the holidays.


While these are in-depth questions about specific or personal experiences that I received previous to this recording, I go in depth into specific language to use with family, new ways to approach an issue and general advice that may pertain to a lot of us. We can all figure out how to manage our experiences during the holidays and for future holidays


If you’re running into a problem with your family during the holidays, this could be a helpful course to have to gain insight on creating boundaries and advice on how to express yourself clearly and have more inner peace and less internal conflict with varying expectations.



What topics this course covers:


  • Different extended family demands between you and your spouse
  • How to manage pressure to get together among differing views of Covid
  • Toxic relationships with a mother and how to connect with other family members 
  • How to navigate tension with in-law’s 
  • What should boundaries look like with in-law’s?
  • Advice on specific language to use to communicate boundaries with family 
  • Navigating boundaries at family parties when someone has lost your trust
  • Being home with different views on the church and church related topics
