    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...

    Maybe I watched too much tv as a kid. But I have always had this impossible dream in my mind. Of a family that likes each other. Of a mother and a father and some kids. They laugh together, and the tough times only make them stronger. Because no matter what's going on, they care...

    Be grateful to family,

    even if they nag you. Be thankful for them, because they have given you everything you could ever have. Never bring them down because they have raised you up to your full potential. Love then just like they love you <3

    It is very important!

    When no one is there for you, your family will always be there. No matter what happens, they will love and care for you. Your family were the first ones in your life before anyone else.

    I feel like I'm always trying to help my family,

    make everyone happy and I don't feel like I get anything care back. I always try to make holidays and birthdays special but everyone else just thinks of themselves. I wish they would see things more like me.

    Your family is your stepping stone

    and building block! They give you the start in life and the role models those that you look up to and influences affect your life! You learn morals,manners,lessons from family which guides you so that you can control what you want/needs and what you don't want/need!

    Never forget about your family.

    You can work and work and work and give them everything but you are taking away the most important thing yourself.I have learned the hard way. This was the biggest problem in my marriage. I will never make that mistake ever again.
