What does it mean to "act like a family"? What role behaviors do you associate with familial relationships? Ask your parents and/or siblings for their perceptions of the family's rituals: what rituals the family has, and what functions they serve. You may get varying responses about the same rituals, depending on who you ask and their perception. Use chapter 10 as a reference point.
