Some families seem to all get along, others can never spend any time together without serious arguments. Why? Is this a genetic thing, or did the good or bad patterns start somewhere and just become ingrained in everyone through experience?
Some families seem to have such a close sense of silly, that you can watch them and see them all getting helpless laughing over something that any’outsiders’ with them just don’t get.
Some families have a common ‘smell’ – not necessarily bad, and not that they all use the same soap, deodorant etc. Does this enhance parent-child bonding?
