Many people value family across the United States and in other countries too. A happy family can make all the difference in a child’s life! Children look to their parents for unconditional love, support, affection, etc. The relationship between a child’s parents, for example if his or her parents remain married, never got married, are divorced, are separated, etc., will most likely have a very significant impact on the family unit, and affect the child’s forming of relationships. Hence, children with parents that aren’t married, living at home, and don’t seem to be happy, might have a difficult time connecting with others, and establishing meaningful relationships or friendships with others, such as their teammates on a sports team, classmates, and neighbors.
