It is so interesting to see and observe the family! Every single family has the unspoken rules that guide them around. For example, in my family every sibling has a spot in which we sit around the Sunday table. I never wrote my name on the spot, but I sat there every Sunday and it became my spot. We all have these rules. Every single person has a role to play and purpose in where they are. Even every person of the family has unspoken roles to play. A sister may be a peace keeper while the little brother is a trouble maker. Next time you are with your family be aware of those little rules and look for them. You will be surprised by what you find.

I am currently enrolled at BYU-Idaho and on this campus we have what is call a learning model. There are three main points to the learning model; Prepare, Teach One Another, and Ponder/Prove.
In my opinion, the learning model is a today, tomorrow, and forever principle. It is applicable to life as a student here at BYU-I, it will be applicable as newly married couple looking to start a family, and it will be applicable when I am 70 telling my grandchildren stories. It is synonymous with how parents should act around, raise, and treat their children. It can also be applied to relationships between siblings. I have found this to be true in my family on many different accounts. The learning model would just plain out help the family to function and run more smoothly.
