The Walls Family 's Life

- “We could live like this forever.” (Walls, 2005, p 18) The Walls family’s life is very interesting and quite similar to my early life. Although my life is similar to theirs it is also very different. Our lives are similar because I also moved around a lot as a child, I had an alcoholic father, and my mother wasn’t the best. They 're different because my family stayed in places longer, we children never had to sleep in boxes or cars, and we weren 't too prideful to sign up on welfare. Like Jeannette and her family, in my early life we weren’t kept up in money....   [tags: Mother, Family, Father, Sleep]

My Experience With My Family

- I’ve never had a close relationship with any of my five older siblings. As we’ve gotten older we’ve drifted apart so much that I don’t really remember what my sister even looks like. Most likely this was caused by the fact that none of us have the same mother, although we share the same father, making it harder for us to see each other. I know some of my friends have had similar experience with sisters going to college, brothers off to the armed forces and family members moving across the country or even across the world....   [tags: Family, Sibling, Mother, Parent]

At school, my classmates went home with their grandparents and told stories about how their big sisters were annoying or how cute their new baby brother was. I couldn’t relate to any of them. These all remained “just stories” to me. Aside from consisting of a mother, father, and children, my family isn’t part of the norm, at least not here in the United States.
