Family - Thought Of The Week

Quote:

“Family is not an important thing. It’s everything.”  – Michael J. Fox

 

Explanation/Question/Challenge:

The world family can mean different things to each of us.  Each family is different and has their own ways of doing things.  Sometimes we can take the family we live with for granted, whether this looks like arguments with parents, fights with siblings or not getting on when families merge together.  The quote suggests that family is everything but we may not always agree.

  • Who do you count as your family?
  • Why do think family is so important? If you don’t think it’s important, explain why.
  • What do you think the ‘ideal’ family looks like? Think about where you would live, would you have pets, what jobs do people have?
