The holidays are not the time to have a confrontation. Avoid talking about “hot topics”. If there is a subject that needs to be addressed, talk about it after the holidays. If you feel like you need more help, talk to a respected confidant or counselor about family issues and how to deal with them. You can brainstorm with them or even try some role-playing.
