There are so many different types of families; traditional, step families, blended families, etc. When there is trouble in the family, it causes a strain on everyone. Crisis within the family can be especially hard on the children. Life brings many challenges with it and we must be willing to make the best of it. The only way to stop a family crisis that just keeps getting worse is to become a transitional character. This is defined as one who, in a single generation, changes the entire course of a lineage. This person can be the one to piece the family back together and the one to make the best of a bad situation.
