Yes. I didn’t realize how different my childhood was until I started college. My parents were witnesses in a murder trial that was being processed from the time I was born until I was around 6. My dad missed my life from the time I was like 4-14 with a few random show ups. My mom and dad were both young when I was born. My dad was 19, my mom 24 I believe. My older brother had a different father than me, adhd, depression, and BPD so when he was a teen he was in and out of juvy and the hospital so I was always parenting my younger sister (5 years my junior). I grew up in a pot friendly household, in a poor area, on state insurance, financial aid, food stamps... ya know, the works. I started smoking weed when I was 16, smoked with my mom who is the hardest worker I’ve ever met. Always made sure her kids were out before her. Dealt with crazy shit to give me the life I had. I had a stepdad (my parents split when I was 6 two months after they got married bc my dad cheated on my mom) who had a heroin overdose in my living room, choked my mother, smashed my moms car with a bat... the list goes on. Oh, and to top all the crazy family shit off, two days before my 16th birthday I had my first grand mal seizure and was diagnosed with epilepsy. I was in the hospital for weeks running tests. I was also sent to therapy and diagnosed with ptsd and anxiety because of my family shit. Let’s just say I moved away for college and things are actually looking up for my family.
Hey I totally understand how hard it is. Went through something very similar. Happy it’s looking up now, just keep doing what you gotta go to achieve an it’ll all work out.
Yeah sure1. Mom super paranoid and procrastinator2. Dad keeps his distance and work and only mess with me and my sister.3. Mom and dad divorced but are friends 4. Aunty 1 is lesbo that's bi-sexual that's married to a 28 she 415. Aunty 2 is a lady who turned into a man with surgery. Who's lesbian wife cheated on her with a man and had a baby. Aunty 2 still with her trying to raise that baby6. Sister has 2 kids unmarried and boyfriend is a bum and "stay at home dad" so she got 3 kids.7. Me I didn't start college til 24 so I'm still finishing it. Working dead end part time jobs8. My little bro (has a different dad from me) dad is crack head and left him basically but calls once every 4-6months and he's special needs my mom refuses to get him the proper him and now I think his life gonna be screwed over he's 12 and don't know math.9. my cousin is bi racial half German half Black. His dad got killed by Mexican gang members and mom was a crack head who dropped him off at 4 months and never came back. Moved to New York had a new family She called him he's 16 this is the first time he ever seen her or spoken to her.
Jeez, I hope it gets better with some time.
Yes in a lot of ways.
I do believe my family is dysfunctional, but we love and support each other and try to make things work. That's what matters the most and what family is about.No family is perfect. EVER. It's all an illusion, the idea of a perfect happy family. We get into fights, arguments and often we drive each other crazy, but at the end of the day we will always have each other's backs. I had two sisters, they used to backstab me every day! I hated it and I'm working on recovering and forgiveness (hopefully), but they always had my back even if they hated me. I remember we were going shopping on black Friday and their was tons of people in the store we were at. Anyway, A man approached me and grabbed me in my personal area. I didn't think he was going to do that and reacted to slow because I was in complete shock. I told my sisters and they went out of their way to HUNT THAT MAN DOWN! We filed a police report, but he was never found.Anyway, Families can be dysfunctional, but, one thing's for sure, they are ALWAYS there for each other!
Hmmm i dont even know but i guessss, My mum (yes i'm from the UK, mum, hehe) and I are not very close, we don't speak like that, for example, i cannot just go and sit and say i'm going to go and have chat, i can't just go and hug her, i mean i can but it will be VERY awkward, oh mind you this my birth mother, it doesn't bother me because it's been like that since i was younger we've never gotten along, don't get it twisted that's still my love thoo, i love her to BITSSSSSSS.My dad loooooooooool let's not even get started on him, he is just here for no damn reason, my mother does everything for us in this damn house , he just eat, sleeps and repeats, i'm not exaggerating when i say that he don't do shit for anybody in this house, don't talk to him either, because he tries to claim things that he doesn't pay for, yepp as you can see he is super toxic. My 2 brothers now i love them two mannn, i have nothing on them, despite the petty shit but yeaa, im super close with them.Is it really dysfuctional?
I don't know about others because the media and statistics always vary. A small minority screams the loudest making it seem like it's a majority. Statistics say otherwise. But statistics come from different sources. There is really no way to tell unless you get every person to inform you on the subject. My family is better than I could ask for. It's perfect. I feel lucky to be in such a great family. And I like to brag about how I was the only child until my sister was born when I turned 20. Two kids born 20 years apart. Unusual but I think it's cool. Especially since I spend 12 years begging my parents to give me a brother or sister. Miracles can happen.
This is really sweet.
mine is not, we had family units and extended family on one side, my parents staed together, kids get along. We not perfect.there are dysfunctional families, a lot of them but depends how one defines this. I think most people don't air their "dirty laundry" so suspect there is more than you are aware of.Statistics show, and I know of cases, where girls and boys were abused by family members for years.. That is the worst kind imho. Trauma and problems run through the family line as it is passed on from one to the other... until someone steps out and breaks the chain. I understand how this works now.
Short answer: No, not dysfunctionalIn generality: Most people think familial problems=dysfunctional family. This is untrueits used too loosely. Elaboration on personal circumstance: I come from a single parent household. My mother married 3 different men, and had kids with 3 different men, all of which either abandoned her. My brothers suffered from drug addiction, and my mother suffered from abandonment issues. We have had our share of problems, but we aren't dysfunctional. We can rally together most of the time to help each other out, support each other and overcome. We also had to cut one of my brothers off, from our family, the corrupted branch was cut and now we are thriving.
Dysfunctional lmao thats like asking whats weird and normal its not there its perspectives. Its people being themselves. here's a good example the owner of the company i work for is a clown in all aspects but the man he likes to call foreman is outspoken and to a good degree unfiltered mind and. In way he speaks to people in general. People will be themselves no matter what. So take a look at the family and enjoy it its just them being themselves. Its the best gift in life.
I'm very fortunate to be a part of a great family. We have had our fair share of family drama, but all families do, whether they are open about it or not. However, I wouldn't consider us dysfunctional. Maybe some parts of the family might be, but overall, I don't think so. There aren't any major disagreements, no drug addiction, alcoholism, crime (I mean, some of us have had minor things, but no felonies or anything like that), etc. I've seen my fair share of extremely dysfunctional families growing up, seeing as a lot of my friends and both of my exes came from them, and I'm glad to say that my family is pretty normal in the grand scheme of things.
Everyone’s family is dysfunctional! We all need to stop thinking the image we see of them is what is true!We all want to give the perception of perfection... yet I love it when I see a family naturally arguing in public etc and wish I could have that!
Yes. Big time. My brothers like to show their ass or balls to new people that come in the house (they’re 17 and 24). Which they did to my fiancé when they first met him haha. Plus they put their balls on the kitchen table. I think that’s pretty dysfunctional 😂😂
I think the vast majority of families are dysfunctional. Why? Because, children take so damn long to grow up. And it's not considered very wise to divulge all information to your kids as soon as they can communicate. We want to slowly interject the idea of relationships that are romantic and sexual in nature. And about drinking and drugs, and so on. As parents, we are, in general, not equipped to know how to do this without causing dissent. Sometimes these issues are handled by the schools, but I really dont think that's a good idea. Dysfunction is our lot until we figure out something better. I haven't seen or heard of anything personally. But learning to communicate with our parents, even if we hurt them initially, is the first step out of dysfunction.
I'm not sure. Mom and dad are still together for more then 25 years. But that dont mean much. My family is full of goof balls, odd balls and weirdos. We are the social misfits of the Family Tree.We have just about anything to make us dysfunctional.From gays, crossdressers, OCD, drug users and so much more. Now as I type this out. We could be normal by todays standards.
Roughly half of all marriages end in divorce. Divorce increased in the 1970s or so as social change occurred. I think the phrase used is "self-actualization"- deciding to live happily, even if that means getting divorced. So now the kids of these divorced families grow up and get married themselves. But being raised by divorced parents increases the likelihood of becoming divorced yourself.And on and on it goes, like a sickly and sad carousel horse.
Lets just say that I was incredibly lucky in regards to it. I wouldn't trade them for anyone else
That’s great, definitely rare to find.
Thank you, true that!
I dunno... Like my siblings used to get into bad fights which would result in black eyes and concussions every other day. And tbh I'm surprised that neither of them was really badly injured, or the police weren't called... but at the same time we all get on like a house on fire...
Family? It's only been my mother and my two sisters, the three of us each have different fathers that have been in the picture in varying degrees. I guess that makes momma look dysfunctional..
I'd say 98% of families are Dysfunctional in some way or another. I know My Family has always been and continues to Dysfunctional. And I've stopped saying we put the Fun in Dysfunctional...
My family put the FUN in dysfunctional! Lol but don’t sweat it most families has problems. It’s the ones that can’t admit it or refuse to admit it and get help with it those are the most dysfunctional families
My family is just me and my mom, and she is in hospice and probably won't be here much longer. Once she is gone it will just be me. At that point, yes, dysfunctional will likely be apt.
No. I'm quite privileged in that regard, and it's not something I take for granted.
No, we're pretty chill and happy. Sometimes my mom, brother and i butt heads but other than that we're all fine
My family is very functional; I'm just a shit head.
Yes, my family is dysfunctional and yes, most families are. It’s not really a normal topic of conversation to talk about
Nope. I'm very grateful to have the family that I have. They're the most supportive people I know and they're fun AF.
I consider my family to be extremely dysfunctional. I think most are dysfunctional, but probably not to the extent that mine is.
Very. When I have my family, I’ll probably compensate for having a dysfunctional one so I’ll try to make it better and hope to not overdo it.
Maybe if they would fuckin talk to me! Restraining orders aren't forever!
No they function well enough. But I’m not in the family anymore lol
Yes, They tried to put me in grave. I was the only skinny one, girls always liked me. Brother stabbed my face when I was baby... I call him chucky doll... Also tried to electrocute me in powerlines.. I abandoned them.
Not in most activities but in some things I like to share and discuss, it is.
What family... It's just me, my wife, and my in-laws.
If we are, it's my fault. they seem to be completely functional but I'm not.
Yes it is I think most families are disfunctional these dsys
Not so Much, Whoever is Left Here, dear...
Mine isn't personally, lots are though.
Yes they are dysfunctional for sure :/
Lol yep but I love them just the same lol
No. Strange, but not dysfunctional.
haha yeah, deeply dysfunctional.
Whose family isn't 😩😂
Yes but it’s more fun.
Yes, in so many ways...
My family is crazy, but we get along lol
