This theory can be used to determine if a family is dysfunctional or not. Functional families cooperate with one another to maintain good relationship with each other, ensure everyone is loved, happy, emotionally and physically secured. Although there is no such thing as a perfect family, arguments, disagreements, and yelling are somewhat normal. Every family has problems, but when each member takes the time to communicate and talk about the issues and learn how to compromise with each
