Here are the responses to the July 15 question: Which TV family most closely resembles your family?
My answer has to be the Steadmans of "thirtysomething." Our family is like the Steadmans because we--unlike the Bundys of "Married . . . With Children"--have compassionate and genuine concern for one another. Each member in our family helps each other through any hardship, tribulation and sadness that comes through in our life, just like the Steadmans.
The Steadmans have the qualitative family life, which reflects love, honesty and warmth. Our family also has all that plus family loyalty and unity. We all do our part to make other members' lives better, such as helping in family business and housework, and we share our thoughts, concerns and complaints in orderly fashion to avoid hurting each other's feelings.
