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
