Family strategy helps to explain the many struggles the family faces especially in mid-life. However, it also provides a path out of the challenges of midlife to success. Nevertheless, the Familytimeline is a shocker especially when you see your whole life mapped out before you. You think of the time you have left and what you could have done better in the past. Then you have to think of what you should be doing now. The urgency is very very "impressive" especially if you are passed 30 years of age. It is something you must work on right away and yet explains so much of what we see going on in families around us.
