E017 Holidays and Adult Kids with Diann Wingert
Just like your kids believed in Santa, you may think your adult children will be at your holiday meals forever. Well, time for a reality check. Your grown kids have their own lives, new relationships and you may be facing an empty chair at the Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner table.
Diann Wingert, LCSW and Life Transitions Coach, guides us through the minefield of unrealistic expectations and hurt feelings. Ugh!
- Why this is the time to start the conversation
- How to balance holiday expectations with the entirety of your relationship with your child
- How to communicate with your adult kids
- How to manage your feelings of loneliness
- Winning ways to make the best of the holidays, minus your kids
