There are many different kinds of families – some include two parents, while others have a single parent. Sometimes there is no parent and grandparents are the primary caregivers. Some children live in foster families, adoptive families, or in step-families. Families should be a source of support and encouragement, and this does not mean that everyone gets along all the time.
Conflicts are a part of family life. Many issues can lead to conflict, such as illness, disability, addiction, job loss, school difficulties and marital problems. Listening to each other and working to resolve conflicts are important in strengthening the family.
