Tips on dealing with family stress over Christmas
Christmas is a time that many people find stressful. This might be because they feel even more isolated from others during what is supposed to be a time for family and friends. Alternatively it can be a result of challenging relationships with family members.
The article below provides some tips on how to cope with potential stressful circumstances when it comes to spending time with family, in this case parents.

Suzi Cairns is a very creative and inspiring lady whom I have come to know through my work and we have often discussed how little we know about people around us.
As she says, 'One of the much overlooked, and extraordinary, facts about the human race, is that every single individual has a unique story. It is only as these tales merge, like some 7 billion piece jigsaw, that communities are born and civilisations are created.'
Through her ' Knock Knock' podcasts Suzi talks to women in her community and learns more about the interesting life of each person she talks to. These interviews have found a real fan base and her podcasts are now 44th most popular interviews on MixCloud!!
I have just listened to her Christmas edition which actually is Suzi narrating a wonderful children's Christmas story. I loved it and hope you do too, even if you don't have children to share it with."
