Speaking: family dynamics Page 80
Our children will ‘hate us ’too.
With’out a ‘family, ‘man, a’lone in the ‘world, ‘trembles with the ‘cold.
In the ‘healthiest ‘families, the ‘power is ‘shared by a’greement. In the ‘others, ‘one ‘parent or the ‘other is ‘usually more ‘powerful.
‘Parents are ‘sometimes a ‘bit of a disa’ppointment to their ‘children. They ‘don’t ful’fil the ‘promise of their ‘early ‘years.
The ‘family is the ‘place where the ‘most ri’diculous and the ‘least re’spectable things in the ‘world ‘go on.
No ‘matter ‘how ‘old a ‘mother ‘is, she ‘watches her ‘middle-‘aged ‘children for ‘signs of im’provement.
‘God gives us our ‘relatives: ‘thank ‘God we can ‘choose our ‘friends.

It is well-known that relationships between children and their parents fundamentally affect adult behaviour. But now their importance is being challenged as new research shows that a child’s relationship with its siblings may have a more important effect. Psychologist Francine Klagsbrun says ‘Our relationship with our siblings is unmatchable. We have them whether we like them or not. As parents die, friends drift away, marriages dissolve, that relationship continues and the memories of a life shared with them remain with us long after childhood has ended.’

A leaflet is a small piece of printed paper giving information or advertising.
To tell people about the London Eye and persuade them to visit it.
