How Family Relationships Affect Developing Adolescents

No matter how much a person may or may not like to admit it, parents can have a drastic affect on their developing adolescents, which can be a good or bad thing.

Whether it’s the relationship between the parents themselves and the entire family, everyone involved is impacted, and is often something that we aren’t aware of.

Many parents never stop once to consider if how they are behaving is going to affect their family, and sometimes even the littlest of things can seem like they don’t matter. But let me tell you, they do.

For example, when a kid spills a drink, the majority of parents get mad and scold them, which only sends the message that they did something wrong, and that it’s wrong to make mistakes when really we should be learning from them. That’s just one example, but it’s a good indicator of what types of behaviors can leave an affect on children in the long term.

Also, if a family is dysfunctional, it can affect the way kids form and maintain relationships whether they be friendships or romantic relationships.

It’s so crazy how deep psychology really runs however, most people think that it’s all just bunk. Maybe that’s why we do have so many fucked up people in our society today.



Hey there, you’re on A Family Mystery

Hi and welcome to the new and improved, A Family Mystery! My name is Dana and I will be your tour guide along the ride all over this website.

To your right, you will find my latest content, as well as archives of all the content contained on the entire site. Ok cool, right. But what is this site all about? I mean, it looks like I’m using a theme that resembles the old school computers in the 90’s. That just makes things a little better in my book, buddy.

Anyhow, so this blog is going to be about why people turn out the way they do because of their parents. Maybe not because of their hereditary genes, but because of the way they were treated at an early age. I have been watching a TON of shows and movies that pertain to people killing other people, and then later on blaming it on their upbringing. With so many people saying that, it made me want to dig in deeper to see if there was any truth in it, which I’m positive that there is.

Also, I have been watching a lot of “Orange is the New Black” lately, and on there they show many of the women’s pasts, that dd include something tragic happening with their parents. It wasn’t death in most cases, but the trauma these parents caused made those women into who they are today. Granted, that’s only a show, but there are many real life scenarios it happens in. Aileen Wuornos is a great example. You know, the chick that they made the movie “Monster” about?

Anyways, I’m sure you have seen enough of my crazy personality by now to see that I’m just another human on this fucked up planet we call Earth.

Welcome to the blog.
