The "Perfect" Family

The mother is beautiful and elegant, but she hides herself from the outside world. The father is a hard working businessman who loves his children and provides for them, but what does he do in the evenings? The little boy is so adorable and is a free spirit but why does he seem different from his friends? Lastly, the beautiful teenage girl who is so kind hearted, but how does she feel about herself? The father goes to the casino to splurge on alcohol and gamble his money away all evening. The mother doesn't love her husband so she saves herself for another man on the weekends. The young son is deaf and he deals with daily struggles. Lastly, the teenage girl is depressed and cries herself to sleep at night before cutting when sleep doesn't come to her. The perfect family doesn't exist but this family bond is existent  and they support each other
