Yet sometimes the change in the routine, too much togetherness, difficult extended family interactions, competitiveness between family members, feeling stuck having to attend a certain gathering – all these can take a toll on us and our children, can throw everyone ‘off-course’, and we can soon find ourselves ‘running on empty’.

Or maybe you’re counting the days until you see family members you’ve missed dearly, but you’re anxious at the same time because certain family member might judge you, not get your parenting style, or they often seem in a ‘bad mood’, as if determined to ruin your holidays.
