“Is there anything I can do to help my son enjoy family time?”

It’s not uncommon for teens to despise family gatherings, but what can parents do to help? This week’s Tips on Teens addresses a question from a parent whose son is miserable at family get togethers. Here’s the question:

“I’m not sure what to do with my son at family get togethers anymore. He was miserable at Thanksgiving with all the family and company over. We have a big family with lots of cousins and friends who come to our house for holidays. Christmas and New Years are around the corner and he is dreading it. He tells me he doesn’t like everyone asking him awkward questions, but I don’t get it. His brothers seem to do fine and everyone there loves him. Is there anything I can do to help him enjoy family time or at least not dread it?”
