No matter how well we may have weathered our basic training, nothing can fully prepare us for the front lines of family gatherings.
We’re in the thick of it, dodging live ammunition, and  ghting the urge to return to our old, reliable patterns that helped us to survive while we were growing up. We may have mastered our relationship skills in one-on- one relationships. We may have improved our romantic relationships, our professional relationships and our friendships. And we may have even improved our family relationships — one family member at a time. But when we’re sitting around the holiday dinner table or socializing at a wedding reception with our entire family, it’s an entirely di erent experience.
