Dr. Helen is asking questions and giving solutions to a problem that really impacts me. How do you keep differences in political orientation from tearing families apart? Can't we just have a peaceful thanksgiving?
My family is pretty conservative. We have differences of opinion on things, but generally we agree. Except my sister and brother in law who are moderate to liberal on just about everything. When you figure in that they're long distance and the rest of us are all local, you could say that our relationship is kind of strained.
But I love my sister, I just can't talk to her for more than a few minutes without getting into a fight. And that isn't fun for either of us.
