When you know to round up your siblings or for you to leave the house or to get in someone’s room, before your parents start fighting, there are definitely some issues you need to talk about.
It’s frightening seeing in ourselves the same ingredients as dysfunctional members of our families. Fortunately, as it is with baking, the proportions, mix, and temperature of the exact same ingredients can yield anything from burnt cookies to elegant soufflés.

I was always the new kid in school, I’m the kid from a broken family, I’m the kid who had no dad showing up at the father-son stuff, I’m the kid that was using food stamps at the grocery store.
When you’re in a broken family and your role model is a violent male, boys grow up believing that’s the way they are supposed to act. And girls think that’s an accepted way man will treat them.
No kid in the world, no woman in the world should ever raise a hand against a no-good daddy. That’s already been taken care of: A Man Who Destroys His Own Home Shall Inherit the Wind.
There is no such thing as a “broken family.” Family is family, and is not determined by marriage certificates, divorce papers, and adoption documents. Families are made in the heart. The only time family becomes null is when those ties in the heart are cut. If you cut those ties, those people are not your family. If you make those ties, those people are your family. And if you hate those ties, those people will still be your family because whatever you hate will always be with you.
A woman should be home with the children, building that home and making sure there’s a secure family atmosphere.
If you ever start feeling like you have the goofiest, craziest, most dysfunctional family in the world, all you have to do is go to a state fair. Because five minutes at the fair, you’ll be going, ‘you know, we’re alright. We are dang near royalty.’
Family isn’t about whose blood you have. It’s about who you care about.
They’ve really got to recognize that all of us bring some of our family issues to work and our work home.
Honestly, my family issues are the one thing that get to me, but they have made me so much stronger than I Could’ve hoped for.
I like when people tell me about their family issues, I feel like I know them better.
Many teenagers would like to have emotional outlet whenever they experience family problems.
Here’s to the kids who are tired of going through the same family problems over & over again…
I feel like anyone who’s ever said the words ‘your parents must be proud’ obviously have some deep rooted family issues.
A word of brotherly advice: don’t broadcast your personal family issues on social media. It will only show how weak and insecure you are.
I hate when people bash their parents on social networking sites, family issues should stay private. Have some respect please.
Always be kind to your parents. Everyone has arguments, but always remember to help them through their problems. Keep family close.
Some things I refuse to talk about on social networking sites. Some things are off limits, like issues with family.
There is no such thing as the perfect family. Every family is unique with its own combination of strengths and weaknesses.
Burdens and opposition will always be there. What is really needed is a clear solid path towards problem resolution and then being mutually encouraged as a family.
There is something frightful in the way in which not only characteristic qualities, but particular manifestations of them, are repeated from generation to generation.
Take any problem in life and it will fall under one of three categories… money, health or relationships.
