Family 

Family is blood and they are the people who most people have spent large portions of their life with. They  accept you for who you are, who would do anything to see you smile and who love you no matter what. Family is one and only place where your life begins and love never ends. You may have lots of people in your life, but you won’t find a single person who care the most like your parents. Your life with your family is what makes you the person you are today. People have stories about their parents or siblings or just how they grew up.

  1. What has been your favorite childhood memory that you will always treasure?

  3. Would your parents consider you well-behaved or bad-behaved?
