Like most people, your family probably plays an important role in your life. How you relate to your family will be different all the time — mostly because you and your ideas are always changing. But no matter what stage you are in, your family can have a big impact on how you feel about yourself and about life in general.

This section will talk about: Family structure (extended, blended, single, same sex, interracial, immigrant), House rules, Siblings and conflicts, Separation, divorce, custody, Youth in care, Teen parenting
