Have you ever gave someone so many things and they always ask for more? You always keep giving and giving until you have nothing to give, all you want to do is make that person happy and they stop asking. All you want is the person to like you and be happy, but you are running out of things to keep yourself happy.In the Giving Tree, by Shel Silverstein uses personification to show the relationship between the two characters. Always giving so much to someone is not always the best thing to do.Soon enough the tree gave the boy everything and then the tree had nothing left for itself. The tree just kept giving the boy everything so the boy was happy, when the boy was happy the tree was happy also.

Family unity is an essential part of my life. My family in many ways works like a team. When I hear the word family, I think of the adjectives loving, caring, supportive, closeness, and chaotic. My family is all of the above. No family is the same, mine is definitely unique.
Growing up, I lived in a very traditional-style family structured home, where gender roles and gender socialization played key roles in the development of my sisters and me. According to the lecture, a traditional family is one where two individuals who are legally bound together by marriage, share responsibilities in taking care of their direct offspring, with the mother in charge of the house and children duties, and the father as the provider (Cohen 2018). While both of my parents do a little bit of everything when it comes to contributing, it has always been the standard for my sisters and I that my father was the one who would work all day, while my mother stayed home, engaging in the housework and taking care of my sisters and me.

In the 1950s, there were usually a specific guideline for what a family is supposed to look like. According to a Washington Post article by Bridgid Schulte in 2014, called “Unlike in the 1950s, there is no “typical” US family today”, the United States has since changed the family dynamic. In the 50s, the head of the family was always the father, and he made the money to support his wife and their kids, who would someday do the same for their families. The mother would almost always stay home to care for, feed and clothe the children as the stereotypical “Homemaker” that was romanticized during this decade. Schulte mentions that, “But perhaps what we haven’t fully understood yet is that today, there is no one “typical” family.
My entire family consist of many people, there’s: my aunts, uncles, cousins, nephews, close friends, and pets. I even consider my best-friends family part of my family, for example I call my best-friend’s mom my second momma. To be honest I think she prefers me that her own daughter. Every time the whole family gets together, it is an astonishing experience and we always create incredible memories, but as in every family we are not perfect. My family is like the show called La Familia Peluche, because this family lives for gossip, everyday it’s something new, and then that creates drama which leads to arguments and fights.
This family history paper will focus on these two key areas: family structure and family relationship during my childhood and adolescent years with emphasis on relevant roles, cohesion, and conflict while growing up. Family Structure I was born as a C-section baby with a bow-shaped lips and strong eyebrows. My parents were extremely joyous with a birth of their daughter. In Hindu cultures, a birth of a daughter symbolizes the “goddess Laxmi,” who is a goddess of wealth and prosperity (Narayan & Purkayastha (2009, p.199). Family Structure during my Childhood Years My family structure during my childhood years comprised of both a joint and a nuclear family.
Around half of all children born nowadays are expected to spend some time in a single parent family. Since before, people always have a perspective that children who growing up in single parent family are different compared to children who growing up with both a mother and a father. Being raised by only one parent seems unbearable to many people and up until now it has become more frequent. Single-parent families are much more common today (Parke, 2003). However, during these days, children who raised up from single parent families tend to become successful, emotionally stable and well manner.
Asian families often live near one another, so there was less emphasis on nuclear family than with most American families. In elementary school, my aunts and grandmas would take care of me after school while my parents were working. During this time, they bought snacks like the
