Family Personalities

What kind of memories do you have from your childhood? Do you recall feelings of warmth and love — or stress and chaos?

How you answer has a lot to do with the environment your parents created in the home, or what I like to call your “Family Aroma.”

There are five healthy “aromas” that families can create.

One is a feeling of Affection. When family members truly care for each other, that sense is carried over into the home.

Another aroma families can create is Respect. This is a sense of honour and recognition and worth.
