How do you deal with the Drama Queen in your family?


In many families there is a Drama Queen....someone who is melodramatic, over-the-top, and 'all about me.' We have one in our family. Do you have one? If so how do you manage your relationship with this family member?

    I would respectfully argue that too many family members imagine themselves to be "superior" to others (and imagine what doctors, teachers, etc would do); when if they respected the other person and listened, they might reduce the frustrated behavior.

    Boundaries is important. Just don't let the boundaries be fuel for drama. Like you said, validate but don't feed the drama.

    I agree. Don't sneer. That is negative, but encourage positive behavior by encouraging positive communication. Ignore the drama & offer incentives for communication rather than drama. Life is a lesson & we all can learn a little more.

    You are right. They soon grow out of it as life catches up.
