Who are the most important people in your life? Most people would say their family and friends.
These are the people who know you, care for you and support you, or maybe sometimes some of them don't.
Being part of a family is a sort of training for being in the world. Everyone in the family has a part to play in family life. Everyone has to learn to get along together, work together, respect each other, carry out their jobs or chores and learn how to settle differences.
Living in the same place together means that life can be tough at times, but the skills learned can be really helpful in the world outside the home.
Our new topic, Happy families may give you some ideas about what you can do to help keep your family happy and your home the sort of place where everyone can feel safe and cared for.
