My entire family is...dysfunctional. I managed to escape years ago, and I've started a family of my own since then. My oldest child is still missed by many of those demented people, but my 3 youngest are by a man they all despise. Every holiday, they expect me to split my family up by letting my oldest daughter come to whom ever's hosting house, while me, my man, and the rest of my younger children go on with our holiday. Like she won't be missed, or like she doesn't have to be apart of this. I let her go for Thanksgiving, and now my mother (whom I don't speak to) has my crazy drunken aunts requesting her for X-Mas too. My war with them is not her war & I don't want her to be exiled from visiting, out of town family. @ the same time I don't want their bullshit (& family history kids shouldn't hear) to sink into my teenager either. & her younger siblings question where she is on holidays...What would you do?
