Thanksgiving is coming up, which can bring up a lot of stress to even the best of families. If there is any dysfunctionality, it can really get bad.
Dr. Margaret Jones was asked by Susan Lahoud of the Sun Chronicle what people can do to help minimize that stress. You can find the article here: Turkey day tensions. The information is actually useful for any holiday or family gathering…whether it be a reunion or even a birthday party.
I have read Dr. Jones’ book “Not of My Making”, in which she shares her experiences with bullying in churches. I highly recommend it. Sadly, this is not an uncommon problem. It needs to be addressed. The first step is to educate people and make them aware of what is going on.
She has a blog, too, located here: Not of My Making. Check it out!
