Why families are the greatest
You might think families are annoying, bugging you,
“Don’t go out before you clean your room!”
“Are Kiana’s parents going to be there?”
“ Get your own money!”
But honestly, families are amazing! Try not to think of the down side, think of the good side. Homework, if you don’t know a math problem, guess what, you can ask them! And most of the time they will know the answer because they are older. What if you are having life problems, maybe having a hard time at school, maybe with other circumstances, parents will always be there for you. They will always be the first people to go to for help, the first people for you.
Also I am actually an only child so I get most things to myself, and I don’t have to share. I get to be alone when I want and have full privacy to myself. Although being an only child can be fun, I would love to have a sibling. I wish I had someone to be with when i’m bored, and stuff like that. Older brothers can protect you. Maybe a younger brother or sister to hang out with. Maybe an older sister to talk about their own things. And the list goes on.
What about Grandparents. Everyone loves grandparents either they are grumpy, nice, excited, sleepy. You have more than one and if you don’t like any that is very rare. Grandparents usually spoil you, back you up in arguments, and even tell the mom/dad off Grandmas Be Like... | Brent Rivera - YouTube
As you can tell family is amazing! They can’t always be perfect at all times, but when you really need them they will be there. Now if you had to live the rest of your life with a relative who would it be, and why? Have fun blogging!

The votes were pretty even. But only one won. Math! Math was the winner! People chose math as their favorite by only one vote. The rankings were math, social studies, tied with science, then language arts tied with P.E. Mathematics (from Greek) is the study of topics such as quantity numbers. There is a range of views among mathematicians and philosophers as to the exact scope and definition of mathematics.
Middle-Schoolers Like Math, But P.E. More Popular, Survey Finds

Do you think most middle-school students would rather do their math homework or take out the trash? What if the choice was between those math equations and eating broccoli?
While you're puzzling over these questions (the answers aren't altogether obvious, are they?), I'll share a few other tidbits from a new survey that aims to tease out the learning preferences and habits of U.S. middle school students, with an emphasis on mathematics. These show the reasons of math being most popular.
