Setting Expectations Around The Holidays

In the words of Ellen Griswold (from Christmas Vacation), "I know how you build things up in your mind, Sparky. You set standards that no family event can live up to." 

That might not fully be the case for you, but we often do struggle with our expectations. Especially when it involves the Holidays and situations that can go south quickly with meltdowns, triggered behaviors, overstimulation, and more. 

How do we navigate through this?  More importantly, how do we set expectations that don't set us, or our families, up for failure? 

That's what we're diving into in this week's episode of The Resilient Caregiver Podcast.
