the mother and children. They live together in a home and assign tasks for each member of the
family to attain a harmonious relationship with one another. The parents are the ones responsible

conflicts and misunderstandings every once in a while.There are countless issues that a family

getting used to the situation.
Having an overly busy schedule can hinder quality time and intimate connection within the
family.To the parents, they may find it helpful for their kids to be busy with different activities in
school, but it can actually create problem as parents will not be aware of how their children are
growing up; their behaviors and attitude.
How to Deal With These Issues?

whole family before the situation gets worse. It is also imperative that everyone must participate in
the discussion and voice their concerns to make sure that they all get addressed.

family member's needs or wants and to be sensitive with everyone's feelings. Having a beautiful
and happy family is what everybody wants, and this can only be achieved through understanding,
respect and a peaceful resolution whenever a problem takes place. Nevertheless, if you think you
