Family: Does The Brady Bunch Type of family really exsist ?

Last Update: December 02, 2018

Families, we all have them. Its funny that some families are so close in connection and really look out for no another. They really have your back and not use it against you when you are down. Or make sure everyone know what they have done to help you out. The real life Brady Bunch. Do they really exist? Why can"t all families be like that. Yes, we all know they are corny but, after awhile you like Corny when you dont have a family.

The thing I love about the Brady's is the way they talked to each other. The positve reinforcement when they need advice. Or direct them in the right direction, instead of putting you down and making you feel like you do not mean anything. Hugging you just for the hell of it instead when they are disappointed in you.

WHat I love about the Bradies, is the closeness and connection they had. Yes, they had fights but did not stab you in the back and left you there. I dislike parties because the concentration is the things you do wrong or how they can rip you apart our the next person. Outsiders become very uncomfortable around families like that. The worst thing about these type of families is the the parents also adds to the mixture of criticism and become the leader in the pack.

I loved the genuine laughter, and how both Brady Parents looked out for all of their children. They both did not show favoritism and tried to treat each fairly. I love watching any family that is happy and get along. They children live close by or even on the same street. Family days, or months. Holidays doing cookies together as a bunch. The final result, batches of cookies, laughter, lunch, pictures and lovely memories. Some familiies get together, argue and critisize the entire day, no friendly conversation or lunch or pictures, yes things you will remember. Especially when the people you're with steal your equipment you had brought and than lie abouut.

Why, can't family enjoy one and other have fun insteading sending the wrong messages to our children and destroying the next generation of families to come.

Love the holidays.

It just depends on how the families are united. If the parents care and want the family close then that is how they are raised. But if the parents don't raise you to close be with your siblings then you won't be close.

I look at this way it all depends upon the parents because it all depends on what values they were raised with and if they want to raise their children with those same values.

There are families like the Brady Bunch but you have to look at the values that they have and that they had their children follow those values. But in today society those values hardly ever exist anymore. That is a shame because there are babies raising babies and they don't have the mindset to do that but they try.

there are still several large families that I know of with as many as 16 members less Mom and Dad but the relationship between siblings are not like they were yesteryear they seem to be growing apart rather than growing closer.

They are families like the Brady Bunch. I wish I had a family like that, especially what I'm going through right now. Families aren't like they used to. There is no closeness anymore. Seems like after our grandmothers die everyone just go their separate ways. Live their separate lives. I have a bad foot and no one calls me and ask me how I'm doing. My good friends up in New York would call me and see how I'm doing. That's a shame.
