<<previous | next>>

1. A teenager wants to be a trend-setter, having an unusual kind of party where the fun does not depend on a lot of booze. It has been decided to talk about it as a family. What do they come up with?

2. A family has been to the same place for summer holidays ever since the children were young. They are now teenagers and want to do something different. What compromise can they reach so that all can have an enjoyable time?

3. The main bread-winner in the family has been made redundant. What can all the others do to support that person and help to keep things going through the difficult time ahead?

4. One of the grandparents who live nearby has died leaving the other alone and needing regular help for which he/she cannot afford to pay. The family has room to have him/her living with them but the grandparent wants to remain as independent as possible. Obviously adjustments will have to be made whatever happens. What would be a good solution to this?

5. The parents have found that they hardly ever have a really good talk together as a family. They blame the T.V. and are considering throwing it out. Is this the best course of action or is there some other way? If so what is it?
