I donít live with my father he left my house when I was a little child. But that wasn't a problem for my because my family is the more special in my life I love when we are together eating, talking, fighting, wherever I love so much, because they are my biggest support in the life, they give me encourage for continue in each step of my life. If they arenít with my I wouldnít have could go to the university. My family is my three sisters, my cousin and my special mother.

And what do you think about your family???

My family is very important to me; my parenst help me and paid for me for the university studies ; this was the custom in my country, at that time, when I finished the univesity; they work very hard al their life for me and my broder, sacrificed for us...my husband's parents do the same thing for him....I don't know, I don't have child yert, but I don't want and I am not available to make so great sacrifice for my future children.. I don't know...maybe, I hope, I wil not need to make so great finacial sacrifices like my parents, maybe, I hope, I'll have a better financial situation, so I'll help them....

Nice to meet you.
Thanks everybody for your nice replies.
I would like know, where are each one from???
With the reason for learning more about the family in different cultures.
Because for my perspective the family would should be the most important for each person, without importance the culture, if not, just the love.

Minomino: I would like give you my support, for you and your brother, but I need know more about him and his situation. And of this way can help you.
Please tell me more about both.

My family is very important in my life. My father has a vast stock of information. So he teaches me various things. My mother is the woman of my dream. She is good at cooking, and sewing. Sometimes, I learn cooking from her. And she also listens to my troubles. Her advice is a great help to me. My older tow brothers have each character. My eldest brother is very smart, so, he teaches me study. And my second elder brother has good motor coordination. When I was a child, I played basketball with him.
Sometimes, I have a quarrel with my parents because they regulate me, for example they decide a closing time. But, I think I understand tenderness akin to that of a parent for a child. I have learned fundamental knowledge to live in the world from my parents since I have been born. So I think my family is very precious to me!

Children in their middle years treasure their families and feel they are special and irreplaceable. Families provide children with a sense of belonging and a unique identity. Families are, or should be, a source of emotional support and comfort, warmth and nurturing, protection and security. Family relationships provide children with a critical sense of being valued and with a vital network of historical linkages and social support. Within every healthy family there is a sense of reciprocity‚ÄĒa giving and taking of love and empathy by every family member.

well, for me it is simple. You can't live without it. it's your foundation so for me, we must look behind our back to them, so we might not get lost.
