Families: reducing stress at home for Thanksgiving

The World

Thanksgiving is all about spending time with family. As college-age kids return home, however, it can be difficult for parents and children to figure out how the rules have changed. Takeaway contributor Lisa Belkin, who writes the family and parenting blog Motherlode for The New York Times, says the time can be highly stressful for families. We’re also joined by Chris Shea of Towson, Md., a father, and 21-year-old Cortez Riley, a student from the University of Minnesota who is about to head home to his mom for Thanksgiving break. The three give us some tips on how to make the break less stressful and more harmonious.
