Familia

My observation leads me to the conclusion that there are two types of American families: dysfunctional and alienated. In a dysfunctional family at least something is still going on.

What is "normal" anymore? I think even the best families are a bit dysfunctional at times.

Lin, that may be what I am saying: abnormal is the new normal. I know there are some families out there with serious issues, and I am not making fun of them; but "dysfunctional" probably describes most families to one degree or another.

Can't a family be both?

Grace, yes. Probably became the latter upon first being the former.
