The holidays can be a high-pressure time. It may also be especially stressful for your gender-diverse child or family member to navigate gendered traditions and family dynamics. Here are some things to consider:
Do some planning ahead of time.
Talking to your gender-diverse child or family member about their boundaries and communicating with extended family members can set you up for a low-stress gathering.
Set time for some check-ins.
Whether it’s checking in with yourself, your child or family member, or your other relatives during and after the holiday event, communication squashes chances for misunderstandings.
