3: I am. I am. Junk food, my boyfriend, and my dog. I like to shop and spend time with family. Confidence, kindness, and honesty are important to me. I like to help others and make people happy. I may lack confidence in myself. But, I have a supportive family that helps me build self-esteem. I love old-time romance. I hate yelling and insults. Wars and killings horrify me. This is me. I am!
4: Every family is different, some being extended families and some being single-parent families. Parents must provide care, affection, security, and support for their children. They need to be prepared for the challenges of balancing work and family in today's society. Work puts a lot of stress on all families, including double-income families, single-parent families, blended families, and extended families. Negative effects include the separation or isolation of family members, and parents bringing their work home instead of leaving it at work. Work affects families emotionally and decreases job satisfaction. Families put a ton of stress on work. When a child is sick, parents must tend to their children and put them before work. Family always comes before work. Making sure the family is satisfied and happy helps the adults at work. If the spouse and children are happy, paperwork and other office activities get done efficiently. The working business class base their mood, attitude, and productivity off of the home and family life. Sometimes it is very difficult to balance work and family, but that is part of the everyday challenge that is presented to most working families.
