i am the 3rd to the youngest, we are eleven (11) brother's and sister's, and have only one DAD and one MOM, =) i think my role in my family is be the joker for them, i always keep them smiling, i let my self to be funny for them to be happy, :) even though they sometimes think about me as "black sheep" in the family, i dont care, at least i make them happy than to make them angry. So what is your role in your family?

I am the youngest of four. I am the one who remembers birthdays, I plan the partiesm bake the cakes. I am the one who takers care of Dad. I am the one who cooks holiday meals. I am essentially the care taker. They all could get a long fine with out me, I dont think I am the glue that holds the family together, I believe we are all elements of the glue that holds the family together.

Thats right, but all of us have unique role that holds the family together. =) Without you, family of yours will not be complete. I realized, they need me more than anyone.

I am the mother of three children. I have a baby daughter that is 9 months old, a disabled son that is 2 years and 10 months old and a teenage son that is 14 years and 11 months old. I have two dogs called Secret and Magic. I think of as being part of my family. When I was a child my parents married the 1960s. My sister was born at the end of the 60s and I was born in the early 70s. Ever the years we had many pets: Miffy the rabbit, Ester the white cat and Tucker the brown cat. In my teenage years I had gerbils called Nod and Wink. So my roles in my family are mother to my children, daughter to my mother and younger sister to my older sister. It is lovely that you keep the members of your family happy.

I am the mother, so what should be my role but to take care of all family matters, except financial related of course, it's my husband's role. I do all the chores although my children helps in any way they can. I don't ask them to help because they are also busy with school and their work. My husband is the head of the family and he's the one approving my decisions with regards to my children. During family bonding, I take care of the food that we will share and my children will take care of anything to make the bonding happy and memorable.

I am the youngest in the family. :) I have an older sister and brother. They say that the youngest are very sweet and bubbly at the same time very playful and fun loving. So I guess my role in the family is to spread lots of love and of course take care of them (my parents) because I am the last child that they'll have when my sister and brother has their own family. :)
