Family Life Intro

What makes a family? There are many definitions.  

Traditional Nuclear: Dad and Mom, married before kids are made. No prior marriages, no prior children. Lifelong Bond. 
Two-parent, parents apart, dual-custody family.
Two-parent, single-custody, disputed custody family .
Single-parent, absent father family. 
Single-parent, absent mother family. 
Step-family, with bio mother. 
Step-family, with bio dad
Foster family, neither bio-parent has custody. 
Institutional life. 
Homeless kids that live and network on the street, that form a sorta-family. 

This section is meant to help you understand how different living situations help or hurt young people. 
But I won’t immediately have a chapter for each type of family.  This is a work in progress.
