    Family

    I think family is everything. It is important to spend quality time together when possible, to have fun together, share new experiences, and last but not least to talk about things. A family can break down quickly if there is a lack of communication and i do believe children are...

    ~*~ My Family ~*~

    I know this sounds corny to some but my biggest dream in life was to be a wife, a mother and be part of a large family. Bride dolls and baby dolls were my very favorite toys. I was the eldest  of 4 brothers and then finally a sister. We didn't have the benifit of an...

    How did this happen? Where did I go wrong?

    I made every effort to keep my teen happy but with discipline too. Always showed them love and affection. Why would my teen mumble the two words? Those two words that you say when you're so pissed off at a New York driver or a when a cop gives you a ticket for no reason. F...

    But sometimes family are not the blood

    relations you are born with. My blood family is basically my mum and my brother. I never grew up with cousins and uncles and aunts. In my scottish side of the family, they are family sure but they don't communicate well I guess. My mum's parents died when she was 9 and 10 so...
