Is your family getting together for the holidays? When going to a big family gathering you are going to be put into many different situations and conversations.  In the following video, you can see how to get through these many awkward and uncomfortable situations with every family member.  The video shows situations with grandmas, grandpas,  aunts, uncles, and many cousins.  Each family member has different ways you need to communicate with them. For example, the older they are then the slower and louder you may need to talk.  The younger they are, the more you need to stay on their level and make sure you’re not too intimidating.

In the end, make sure you try to enjoy the time you get with family because you may not spend every holiday with them!
