Our expert says:
Family Christmasses can be much more stressful than most people expect. Its really not a good time to bring together family members who have a history of conflict, for the first time in many years. Can't you arange to visit your dad, with the grandkids, at another time ? I like Maria's points --- I don't know what the geography of all this might be/ IS it possible to meet your brother, just the two of you, before Christmas, and check out how you both feel about it ? Discuss it, too, with your dad. And Anon's point is worth considering --- maybe this year go and see him and your father on your own, and take your husband and kids to see your father afterwards. Based on how the meeting goes, decide about a fuller family gathering in the future.
