28 May 196 Is Your Family Dysfunctional? (Find Out Inside!)
There are certain obvious traits (like addiction, etc.) that make families dysfunctional, but on today’s show, I’m going to be covering some dysfunctional family dynamics that have become normalized in our society.
It is important to be aware of these other types of dysfunction because they can influence a) how you’re raising children and b) your self-esteem.
In this week’s episode, I’ll be covering various dysfunctional traits and next week I’ll be covering dysfunctional roles in family systems.
Enjoy the show!
