Stressful Family? Cornell Prof Has Advice For A Smooth Thanksgiving
"We often have stereotypes that are partly reinforced by movies or TV shows about how awful the holidays are... [but] if you look at survey data, most people feel relatively close to their families... The majority of people enjoy these family gatherings, so it's important not to have this negative idea that the family is falling apart... Thanksgiving is particularly special because it doesn't have all of the pressures of Christmas and the commercialization and the gift-giving. It really can be an opportune time for families just to come together and enjoy one another."
