I Believe Family Is Very Important

    If a country is to be corruption free

    and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.

    I do too! Especially

    when it comes to my immediate family. My children, my parents and my siblings. I really don't bother with the rest of my family. They have too much drama.

    I think this way: Your "family of origin"

    comes first while you are single. When you get married, your husband/wife and your own kid(s) have to become your new focus and your new family. Creating your new nucleus comes first. Family of origin comes second once you choose spouse. It will create a strong, loving...

    It is interesting that

    as a society we accept the concept and practice of a head of a corporation, political entity, societal group, or government, but it is generally rejected as a correct model for a family. With my husband as the head of household we have order. He and I discuss family issues and...

    Family doesn't mean same DNA.

    In fact for me my absolutely closest of family are some of my friends on here. They are here for me always when things are down. When they can when things are good. Never judging, They are they best one could ever ask for.
