Corner High School students give their take on 'Entertainment Tonight'

(Continued)

CORNER — By Zach Weldon

Families are not spending enough time together.  This is because everybody has many things to do and they are always rushing.  When you can’t sit down and talk, either because you don’t have time or because your parents just won’t, you begin to drift apart and this why family time is very important.

A way to accomplish this is by sitting down to a meal, riding in the car, seeing a movie, or maybe as simple as just sitting down and talking.  The more family time, the stronger the family.  Strong families are less likely to commit crimes as well as become good friends to people and make the people as a whole, stronger.

By Sydney Conner

I think family relationships are important because your family will be there for you when no one else will be.  Spending time with them gives you the opportunity to share with each other what goes on in your daily lives.  It’s always good to be comfortable talking to your parents about your problems because they want what’s best for you, and they will give you the best advice.  No matter if you’re the parent or the child; we all have situations in our life when we need family support and love.  Family relationships are very important.

By Shelbie Gilbreath

I believe family should always be a big part of everyone’s life.  Family should be someone that you can count on to be there for you no matter what.  Your family should be people you can go to and feel safe and loved and be around and be yourself.  You should have fun with your family and have a lot of time together.  I believe I am very blessed to have a family that is always loving and caring.  I also know I should always be happy with my family because some people aren’t as fortunate to be blessed with a good family.
