Introduction:Unmanageable relatives will be known very soon in the family. Most often times the close relatives have put up with the traits that are unnecessary and terrible for all their lives. These ways to handle these unmanageable relatives are to be taken seriously.
Just how do you avoid these unruly people you ask? Simply walk away as soon as you see you will be the target of their movements. When you see them looking toward you, make a quick exit to another part of the house, building or even get in the car and go. Get away any way you can. Most of the time the unmanageable relatives have already used up all the other relatives and you are the final target. Put on a smile and just get with a formed conversation that you can join it you can't go any further to get away from the relative you are needing to avoid.
When you are confronted with the presence of an unmanageable relative begin you own conversation about anything to divert the attention from the subject that relative wants to talk about. Don't wait until they begin talking, but if you get caught off guard, you will need to redirect that conversation. You might even need to interrupt their train of thought. Learn early on when that relative will be present so you will be ready for this kind of action on your part. There is no need to inform other relatives what you are doing, but it they ask you can either explain you had something pressing to talk about or come clean to that relative if they appreciate your stand.
Your list can contain a collection of things you will be leading a conversation with around the unmanageable relative. Check them off as you used each so the actions you do each time you are introducing a subject of a topic to discuss that will not be duplicated more often than once. You will be surprised how much fun this list will be to compose and then to open a conversation with the unmanageable relative alone or when they are with others too. Make sure you have plenty of material about the subject you have on your list. If you don't; keep people around in your discussions who do have an education enough about the subjects.
Unmanageable relatives thrive on getting a vulnerable person alone and hurting them or bullying them in some way. Arm yourself by trying not to be alone with this relative. Protect yourself in other ways too. Excuse yourself to use the rest room, to get a bite to eat, a beverage and anything you can think of. This might include a coughing episode that you need to get fresh air or a sudden need for a nap or quiet place without talking or listening. Use these wisely so they look real and if you return to the gathering later, you could have recovered well.
An unmanageable relative has some deep seated social issues that you might not be equipped to handle with all your helpers you institute. The next best thing is to kill the relative with kindness. Tell them the good things about themselves. Elaborate as far back and you can recall and keep the compliments or good points coming as long as you can. If you run out of things they actually have done, encourage a conversation about the things you THINK they would excel in and continue with how they will someday have those things to talk about to everyone in the family.
