These three points were how DSS handled the case, denial and blame, and family secrets. The issue with how DSS handled the case of the Stands Over Bull children seemed rushed and somewhat negligent. The way the documentary presented it, she did not exert much attention to finding someone to take these children within their own community. Instead, she crossed several state lines to find a couple to adopt these children, in which this family already had six children. It is great that she found a way to keep these siblings together, but in circumstances where a culture is so different from outside cultures, it seems best to look inside their own culture first.
The two oldest managed to handle their parents with minimal issues. This is a combination of Jane and Elizabeth both having fairly tolerant personalities as well as their parents being much more hopeful for a son, since their family was just beginning with the birth of Jane and Elizabeth. Jane and Elizabeth both differed from society due to their holding out for true love.

From what I’ve heard of how my older brothers were raised, years before my mother was a daycare workers, she was right. This one case seemed to be true, but I wanted to explore how other people thought their occupations affected their parenting.

It seems like because of the cultural beliefs the children are afraid to open up to their father and tell them how they really feel. Even as adults, they avoid communicating with their father because they believe they will upset him. This is a problem because they are a close family and in order to remain close, they need to have functional communication. “Functional communication is viewed as the cornerstone of a successful, healthy family as the clear, direct transmission and reception of both the content and instruction level of any message”(Friedman, Bowden & Jones, 2003 p. 271).

Regretting the past is something that I know my grandmother will not approve of. As I sat in my seat as service ended I thought about the perks of being able to be with my grandmother at all times, and thought to myself that this event is the perfect opportunity to build a relationship with her in spirit.
I. Introduction Parenthood, a drama television series, attends to the adversity of an extended and imperfect family. The Bravermans are a blended California family who face a series of both fortunate and unfortunate events but together find a way to get by (Katims, 2010).
