Family Members : The Same Type Of Family

- Not everybody has the same type of family. Of course not; if we did, then we would all go on to live the same lifestyles, and that would be boring. Every family is different in their own way, and the biggest difference would be the family members themselves. The amount of family members can range from large, to medium, to small, but just what type of family members are they. There are strict parents, carefree grandparents, the no-show cousins, and many, many more. Family members of most to all kinds can be classified into the following three categories: family members who aren’t particularly close, long distance family members who are only seen once or twice a year, and family members who ar...   [tags: Family, Want, Sibling, WANT]

My Life Of My Family Members

- When I think back on all of my family members, one thing that ties them all together is resilience.
