Some scholars say that family group is irrelevant, and other scholars understand the importance of family group and see family group as an opportunity to express how they feel. A family group carent, Mrs. Dejesus, was interviewed and stated that “family group is a place to feel at home and express your feelings,” meaning that people come to family group to tell peers and teachers how they feel, whether it’s a bad thing or a good thing to express.
A fellow family group student, Elizabeth Steyart, was also interviewed and stated, “family group is a place where you can get along with others. The reason that people think family is irrelevant is because they feel as if it is a waste of time and ever since the pandemic scholars have been showing up as much as they were towards the beginning of my sophomore year.” I talked to my classmate, Eugene Barnes, and he stated, “family group is boring and there is nothing to do in there.” A solution to this problem could be to create more fun activities in family group and come in with more positive energy towards other students and their teachers during family group, because it can be a powerful experience if you’re willing to try.
