DO: Juggle your families

Chelsea’s dad Randy bars Adam from joining their festivities, so Chelsea brings Aubree to get a Christmas tree with Adam, just the three of them. It’s more trouble and it probably made the holidays bittersweet for her, but it was a lot more mature than yelling at her parents for not being more welcoming.

DO: Retain your fashion sense
