- Can’t relax
This family’s schedule is always full with no time for anyone else.
- Can’t enjoy quiet
This family lives in the midst of constant and conflicting sounds of entertainment.
- Never satisfied
This family always wants to have more, and to be more than they are.
- An absence of absolutes
With no set standards, this family isn’t sure of themselves.
- Suffering servants
Craving approval from others, this family does good, but for bad reasons.
- A storm beneath the calm
While appearing calm, this family is trapped in constant concern and worry.
- World-class overachievers
Only happy when they are succeeding, this family lives in constant competition.
