Hello. I'm Jan. Thank you for landing on my blog. I have been a community liaison officer at a high school for the past thirty-five years. I love my job because it involves working with students and their families to find solutions when relationships become strained. Even the best families have their rocky moments and I am privileged to be able to help. Over the years, I have seen the whole gamut of emotions that occur within families such as the joy of births and weddings, the strain of managing a blended family and grief at the death of a loved one. I have gained an awful lot of tips about families and relationships and I've finally managed to organise this site so I can share my experience. I really hope that you enjoy browsing and find something useful within these pages.
