Just as the earth goes through seasons, so does a family in the course of time endure seasons. Marriage, falling in love, and the birth of a children are times of renewal like Spring. Long pleasant periods of calm that some families are blessed to have are like the feeling of an endless Summer. As we and our children grow older, our leaves start to change. We start to experience Autumn. This may seem like dying but it is really only signs of a new phase of life. The times of crises and hardship are times for the family to stay close together, help each other out and endure what are sometimes the frigid winds of change. This period is akin to Winter. Life is full of seasons and changes which are best experienced with the support of friends and family.

Happy Family Occasions

The anniversary is a time of reflection of the event that was experienced. It is healthy and natural to remember an event on the anniversary of the day it occurred. Moments of joy should be celebrated with joy.

Hard Times

Hard times, such as when a family member who is going through a particularly trying time, call for family members to come together and support one another.

Dad and Mom

Parents are the unsung heroes of every person that has ever done anything great.


Brothers and sisters love each other. When it comes to defending a sibling, have no doubt that brothers and sisters will defend each other to the death. The irony is that sometimes they cannot say a civil word to one another. They love each other but they just can't stand each other. Brothers and sisters live so close together that they cannot help but compare themselves to each other. Invariably, one will have talent in an area where the other doesn't. This may feel threatening. The only way to combat sibling rivalry is to nurture a secure sense of self so that no one else can be seen as a threat to an individual's place in the family unit.


Children are the ultimate gift to two people who love each other and the ultimate inconvenience to parents that don't.

Completing The Family Circle

Every member of the family has a unique role to play in the family unit and every generation is important

Good Times

Memories of our family and childhood are what shape our personality and who we are. We take the traditions we grew up with us into adulthood. Our childhood home, in our subconscious is like our mothers womb. It will always be our true home and the home against which all future homes will be judged.

Marriage, Love and Romance

A loving marriage is one of the greatest achievements of our times. Divorce is at an all time high, and the general belief is the marriage is a pain in the neck... but, marriage offers an opportunity to share develop the inevitable friction which sharing your bathroom causes, into greater love and understanding.

Communication, Relationships and Feelings

Friction in relationships is an opportunity to realize our differences and accept that although we can never fully understand each other, nonetheless we accept and love each other.

There's one sad truth in life I've found, While journeying east and west
The only folks we really wound, Are those we love the best.
We flatter those we scarcely know, We please the fleeting guest,
And deal full many a thoughtless blow, To those who love us best."
~ Ella Wilcox

When an individual begins to abuse drugs, the whole family is affected. Depending on the severity of the addiction, they may begin to steal or borrow money from the family, act strange and spend days living on the street. The only thing that is important is how they will get their next high. There may be conflicts in the family about how to treat this individual. Some may continue to support him while others adopt a tough love strategy. It is difficult to know what to do, and heartbreaking to see an individual become a slave to a drug.
Father Poems (69 Poems)
Dad's are often the most misunderstood part of the family unit. As a rule, men have trouble displaying their emotions. This is product of our society that believes that it is not macho to show emotions. Fathers may have been shamed into repressing their emotions and may pass this on to their children. On the other hand a father who can show his children that a real man is one who shows emotion is a great gift to his children. A father plays a huge role in his children's development. Hopefully, he will live up to the challenge of being the best Dad that he can be.
