Mike & Liza’s Family Feud: When Family Fun Isn’t Fun

From March 28, 2018

Dear Mike & Liza,

My sister made a New Years Resolution to have us to dinner every other week. She wants to be a closer family. She likes the idea of us all sitting around talking, laughing and playing cards. She wants the cousins to form strong family bonds and really love one another. All of that sounds great, but after 6 of these fun family get togethers I think it’s obvious, it’s just not going to work. It is NOT fun. The cousins don’t play well together. My sister gets frustrated and my family leaves with my kids and husband saying “please don’t make us do that anymore.” I just really don’t know what to do.
