The Impact of Separation from Family: A Timely and Timeless Lesson
Separating children from their parents while attempting to cross from Mexico into the United States without authorization often also means separation from the family. Both have adverse affects on the children and parents, the family and future generations.
What are your theoretical assumptions about the family?
My theoretical assumptions about the family is that the nuclear family has created a unique set of patterns based on a variety of factors due to socio-economics, genetics, and a push/pull from biological connectedness and emotional connectedness that create that nucleus. Those factors are often unknown to the nucelar family and are passed down through generations.It is only those individuals who look deep into the microscope of their family nucleus who will become aware of the dysfunctional behaviors and might be able to correct the course of untoward behaviors for future generations.
