This love between them helped them both go through many hardships. It helped Odysseus whenever he faced trouble and it helped Penelope keep the hope that Odysseus will one day come back to her. Another kind of love that can be seen in Odysseus family is within his father-to-son relationship with Telemachus. Although they never really had a chance to get to know each other, they still constantly worried about each other’s well being. Odysseus worried about how Telemachus's future was in danger due to the suitors, however, for Telemachus it was more than that.
But once they move to Welch, we see a more neglectful and destructive parenting style. Both Rex and Rosemary start to ignore the kids, asking them to fend for themselves and each other. This leads to both Lori and Jeannette having to help and almost manage the other two children. But in the long run, this may not have been a bad idea because it strengthened both of their independence. More and more we see this, as the Walls parents put the children in bad situations, they struggle, but eventually fix the situation and learn valuable lessons.
College is one of the most important and life changing times in the life of an American. Leaving high school behind and venturing out to the adult world is an amazing experience that every individual should experience. However, young adults from every corner of the country leave college with crippling debt or do not go to their preferred college of choice.

In the case, Tim tells Lonnie that he has no intentions of replacing her father but more so wants to build a better family with her and her mother and sister. In my opinion this line between replacement and addition to the family when dealing with stepparents is very blurry and can sometimes cause a rift in the family dynamic if not handled well or careful. Overall this case study focuses on blended families and how do they development them.
Nearly all of the moves have nothing to do with bettering the well being of the child. Many of the placements are done to carry out the systems policies and other placements are done if foster parents don’t meet the child needs. Children are less likely to be moved many times if a foster family is prepared to meet the child 's challenging needs.

Plenty of placements are also done if the child is initially placed in short-term care but needs to be moved to long term.
They described how supportive and caring their families were, but they could never truly understand what it was like to live with a stutter. Many of their parents were supportive and helped them gain better control of their child’s stutter. The individuals in the video expressed how their families support was very encouraging, but they could never fully understand what it was like to live with this type of fluency disorder.

When the father says “She must feel terrible, pushing you, of all people. It would have to be you, but I know she didn't want it to be” he knows that deep down Rose has good in her even though she causes harm. Rose is a complicated person with a complicated life. She not only has gone through a lot of change, but she has to constantly rely on her family to be there supporting her as if she was a toddler. Her actions do not define her and her family acknowledges that when others choose not to because they know that she does not understand herself why she acts on impulse.
