Differing viewpoints, feelings of frustration. We’re all constantly on edge today, and families can be home to a wide range of beliefs, which only adds stress to “together” time.

But who has the energy for negativity? And what message are we sending to our kids when we don’t even try to be civil?

Dr. Ellen Braaten, who’s family is the perfect melting pot when it comes to different POVs,  joins co-hosts Dr. Gene Beresin and Dr. Steve Schlozman to help viewers try and shift to a more positive attitude when it comes to surviving the holiday season.

Thank you for joining us in this journey and conversation. We look forward to hearing from you!
