Are the Kids Truly All Right? by by Liz and Diana Welch - "The family I strained to hear no longer existed" (Welch 196). This quote is said by Liz Welch; she lost both of her parents at the age of sixteen (Welch 168). Many people lose one or both parents at a young age.

Losing one parent usually causes a person to have detrimental effects, so losing both parents will most likely ruin a person's health. Even though the Welch children, in the memoir The Kids Are All Right by Liz and Diana Welch, have grown up and appear well, growing up without parents can have negative effects on a person because the cultural impact of the book details the negative outcomes and...   [tags: family, children, orphans, adults]
