With one-third of the American teenagers threatening to kill someone and one out of every 200 girls (aged 13 to 19) cuttingthemselves, estranged children have become the mark of the evil. The family is the first stage to rehearse for life. If familial bonds lack love, trust, respect, care and support, children turn their life into a game of vengeance to gainlove, trust, respect, care and support from around.
Where do you each stand in each other’s hearts and eyes?How does your family interact with each other? Do you spend quality time with eachother, is do you talk in the Morse code?
To alleviate the distress and frictional aura between family members, the first step is to sit together and share silence with each other.
If you find it difficult to talk, write down the happiest and the saddest memories you have of each other. Now, share these memories with each other.
