Kids and Family Drama – How to Handle It

Family drama happens.

Often we work hard to keep our kids out of the mess. They don’t need to – and usually shouldn’t – know about all of the differences of opinion, bad behavior or arguments that happen between adults. Extended families have some conflicts, and younger kids don’t really have a place in, or opinion about, those conflicts that will help them in any way. So what do you do when the drama comes to them?

Family parties can draw us closer…

to each other, but also to the drama. So how can we handle it when our kids are going to hear or see some of the arguments? The hosts at Emotional Mojo wanted to talk about just that as the holiday season is all around us. We answered:

  • How to prep kids for disagreements,
  • What your kids can do if they need an out, 
  • How to handle it when someone insults your parenting, and 
  • What to say about that crazy drunk uncle

What do you do when the family drama touches your kids?
