Hell kitchen is a great show on TV. I watched it several times and I really like it. I think it’s a great TV show because there are a lot of Hell kitchen out there. However the word Hell just come to me like it would be great for other categories too. You have hell family, hell work place, hell relationship, hell neighbors, or even hell community. I think that there are a lot of stories that can be derived the word hell. I thought I talk about hell family. It seems to me that not one family can get away with the word hell family because each family has its own hell. I don’t have to look far. Right inside of my family is a really bad hell and also my relatives. Not one of my relatives have a non-hell family. Yes, family can be from hell too.
It’s really interesting when you watch the Hell episode of Hell kitchen. You would get to see fights from restaurants owners, dirty kitchen, dirty restaurants, horrible food and major disorganizations. However, when the hell chef doctor steps in, he fixed most of the problems due to his expertise. I feel like it can be done to families too and I’ve seen shows that have done it like talk shows. Oprah show seems to address a lot of family hell problems. There aren’t that many families that go without problems. They must be really lucky to have no problems at all.
I think a lot of family can relate to these hell stories. It’s like seeing their own family on TV or in an article. Telling my own family hell story is a starter for those who want to read more about it. My parents have a terrible marriage since I was a kid. I think that their terrible marriage just kind of ruin the rest for all the children. If they fight all the time, they can’t sit down and talk about kids. They take all of their woes out on us. Yes, it was a terrifying marriage for the children to live with too.
I have three brothers who are also hell kids. They don’t listen and they get into a lot of trouble with the law. They get into legal problems. It cost our family a lot rescue them out. We went broke over these kids. Yes, children are costly. Who says that they come with a perfect future? It’s unpredictable. Even when we are in our thirties, our parents still fight and take things out on us. My brothers still get into fights every now and then. It has improved because they get tired of the drama too. However, my family was a hell family. It would be really good on TV. I’m sure there are plenty of children out there with hell family. It’s good to know that you’re not alone. This is why I don’t believe in having a lot of children. You create another hell that you wish it was never there.

The Extended Family in Japanese History
The extended family in Japan or “Ie” features as a regular feature of the Tokugawa period (1603 – 1868 A.D.) and is the precursor of many of the corporate practices followed by Japanese houses even today.
Family is the primary unit of all societies, and in most pre-industrialized societies, the family unit included relatives in addition to the couple and their children. To that extent the tradition of extended family in Japan is also no different. However, what makes it unlike any other extended family in the world are some of its characteristics that have never been observed in any other family system.
More than a Family
It is important to understand that ‘Ie’ refers to a unit that is something more than a family. In fact, it would not be inaccurate to say that ‘Ie’ was as much a domestic unit as it was an economic one. Then it should come as no surprise that by the ‘Domestic Relations and Inheritance Law’ promulgated in 1898, registration of family and individuals was made mandatory, and rigid controls were imposed on it, something that we normally associate with ‘companies’ or other commercial units, not families. The reason for this act, to a large extent, might have been the functioning of many of these ‘Ie’ as commercial or business units at that time.
Legal Acceptance of Extended Family
In the early Tokugawa period, ‘Ie’ system was common only among the more affluent strata of the society. By the Act of 1898, it was extended to all including the peasants. In a way it was the attempt of the rulers of that time to institutionalize family on the lines of Tokugawa model. This also means that all families before that did not necessarily qualify as ‘Ie’. The word “Uchi” may in that sense be more appropriate description of family based on conjugal and filial relations alone. Other words that have also been used to denote family are ‘kazoku’, coined in 19th century – which does not include non-relations living within the ‘Ie’, and the word, ‘setai’, which excludes the ancestors and future generations from the concept, thereby meaning something like the household in existence, unlike ‘Ie’ whose concept is more like a permanent patrilineal unit.
The Typical Family included Non-Family Members
In a typical extended household or ‘Ie’, there could be multiple generations, but each of them will not have more than one married couple. The unit was headed by the ‘House hold head’, who was fully responsible to the authorities for the conduct of all the members of the ie, and also had complete authority over the property as well as members. The inheritance was patrilineal, with eldest son (in most cases) being designated as ‘heir’ and trained to carry on the family tradition and responsibility. The younger sons could continue as part of the family only till the time they did not marry and on marriage they had to leave and start their own separate household. The daughters, when married, had to go to the husband’s family or household, and had no rights to inherit property. This way the social position of the women in extended family of Tokugawa model had significantly deteriorated since the 12th century when the women did have rights of inheriting property.
The ‘Ie’ usually included non family members too, like servants, apprentices, and acquaintances, who worked with the other family members. Other relatives like the brothers, brother’s sons etc could also be adopted into the family. In the beginning of seventeenth century about one third of the family members of the ‘ie’ are said to be non-relatives.
Impact of Japanese Family to its Management Practices
Subsequent to the Meiji restoration, in the industrializing Japan, extended family became much more than a social domestic unit, and was frequently the commercial or trading unit as well. Several of its practices of Japanese management like the ‘lifelong employment’, ‘emphasis on loyalty’, ‘preference of organizational interest over that of the individual’ and ‘harmony’ can actually be traced to the functioning of business within the ‘Ie’. Thus, the extended family traditions have played a very significant role in the developed of business practices of modern Japan. Also the reason that they were so successful in Japan may have a lot do with their acceptance in the prevailing culture of the time.

Problems that involve spouses, siblings, and children are common. These problems can often escalate into larger problems when there is no help available from an experienced third party that can provide a resolution for a dispute. A family law attorney has the knowledge to find a legal solution to all related problems.
A divorce is a stressful time for both spouses and existing children. Tempers can quickly become out of control during the notice of divorce by the other spouse. These disputes can quickly evolve into domestic disputes that can include domestic violence or abuse. Seeking assistance from a knowledgeable lawyer can help to prevent these incidents.
The division of property is an important part of a separation between two people. Couples can own businesses, make investments, or sell co-owned properties during their marriage. When the marriage is being dissipated, couples can argue about which spouse owns what or takes claim to what monetary investment or property. Family law attorneys have the experience to assist during these times.
Prenuptial agreements are often used to help avoid potentially negative situations during a divorce or legal separation. They are inclusive and provide specific instructions on the placements of property, homes, bank accounts, and other personal possessions. A couple can explore the option of these agreements to help avoid future legal scenarios.
When people are newly married, they may want to adopt a child. This could be for reasons that they cannot have a child on their own due to medical complications or injuries. An in-depth consultation with a family law lawyer can provide options on how to complete the adoption process without errors and make the transition for a new child to enter the home faster and easy.
A divorce is not the only solution when two people decided that they want to be apart from each other. A legal separation is common and can be used to separate two people during a difficult time. This avoids the process of a divorce and provides a way to work out the details at a later time avoiding lengthy trials.
Child custody can become a big issue during divorce proceedings. Children can complicate the process and be forced to make a decision about what parent they choose to provide a permanent home and which parent to visit if at all. A consultation with a family law attorney provides solutions to custody issues before problems cannot be resolved without mediation or further legal battles over the approximate placement of a child.
When a spouse receives a divorce, this can create financial difficulties. A divorced person that was not the sole income provider in the family can have problems paying for normal living expenses. A knowledgeable family law attorney can help explain the concept of spousal support and make a claim on behalf of the indigent spouse. The ex-spouse will be legally required after a court determination to provide financial support for a determined amount of time to provide compensation to help the indigent spouse live normally.

Family crests are not what you might think. The term “family crest” is sometimes used interchangeably with the heraldic terms “coat-of-arms” or “family shield,” but a family crest is actually only one portion of the heraldic display known as a coat-of-arms. The crest is usually the uppermost design element in a coat-of-arms, standing on top of an armor helmet depicted in the coat-of-arms. It is analogous to the crest on top of the heads of some birds.
Design Elements in Family Crests.
Different animals and other graphic representations may be used in the design of family crests. A hand or arm holding a weapon, a lion, horse or dragon, or the wings of an eagle or another bird are often seen.
A wreath (torse) in the family liveries (the principal colors of the family shield) usually surrounds the crest. In family crests of nobles such as princes, dukes or earls, a coronet often takes the place of the torse or sits on top of the torse.
Historical Underpinnings of Family Crests.
Heraldic coats-of-arms and family crests originated in Europe’s early Middle Ages, and they came into popular use during the feudal period. Medieval knights used their crests and coats-of-arms to quickly and easily identify themselves to friends and foes during tournaments and battles. For example, a knight’s shield and helmet were usually painted with colorful, vivid design elements from his coat-of-arms, oftentimes the family crest. A similar system – but with different graphics – evolved and came into use in feudal Japan.
Other than reigning Queens, women are generally not entitled to bear or use family crests, and neither are members of the clergy. These exclusions are an historical artifact that arose because women and clergymen did not fight in battle or participate in medieval tournaments, and accordingly they would not have had a helmet on which to display a family crest. Because the stylized representations which we now think of as being family crests originated as displays on top of actual armored helmets, there was no mechanism to ever create a family crest for a woman or clergyman.
Family Crests Today.
By law, in several countries, only certain specific people (“armigers”) are technically entitled to bear or use family crests and coats-of-arms, even today. But family crests are such attractive designs that they have become popular as wall displays and as part of the design of some jewelry. Like coats-of-arms, heraldic family crests relate to a specific historical individual or family name, and sometimes they symbolically portray that individual’s deeds or events that occurred during the family history. Typically, very specific symbolic devices, colors and patterns are combined to create a heraldic family crest, and each of these components tells part of the story of the person or family that the crest belongs to. They are, however, typically highly stylized and it is sometimes very difficult to accurately decipher the symbolism used in a family crest. But even when the meaning of a family crest has long been lost in the mists of time, it is a beautiful, highly decorative design that evoke the magic of the Middle Ages and links us to a noble past.

There is no doubt that a family law mediator does a thankless job. Bringing about mediation or an alternate dispute resolution for the couples having trouble getting along is certainly a tough task.
So What Does A Mediator Do?
Simply put, a mediator is a neutral facilitator who assists the parties in a dispute in communicating and negotiating a mutually agreed settlement out of court. A mediator’s role is very sensitive because he often deals in family mediation. A family mediator is sought, most importantly, because the parties in question find the mediator as impartial, and so they heed to his advice and dialog.
What makes a family law mediator so successful? Does he or she have some special attributes? Yes, a thriving family law mediator has the following qualities.
This is singularly the most important feature of a mediator. It is impossible to work as a family law mediator unless he or she has the trust of the parties. The reason is not far to seek. The parties know they have no choice in choosing a judge during arbitration proceedings, but mediation offers them the luxury of picking a mediator in whom they have explicit trust. Obviously so, because during arbitrations in court, the proceedings are held in open in front of the arbiter or the judge. Whereas in mediation the parties confide with the mediator in close doors very often in one-to-one meetings. They have to, as this is the only tool by which a mediator can get to know the common platform on which a mutually agreeable solution can be reached.
Neutral at all times
Family mediation requires that the mediator should never give an impression that he or she is leaning favorably toward one of the parties. It is the neutrality that reinforces trust.
The faith reposed by the parties when the family law mediator is appointed should never be transient. It should be applicable even after the mediation proceedings are over. In fact, neutrality is that overt act that binds the mediator and the parties.
One of the key reasons why parties choose mediation over court proceedings is that mediation does not wash dirty linen in public. Moreover, if it is trade mediation, the parties would not want the trade secrets out in public. During mediation, the parties divulge a lot of personal and sensitive details to the mediator with an implicit faith that confidentiality will be maintained at all costs.
When it comes to listening, a mediator has an edge over courts. Courts have no time to listen to the emotional baggage of the aggrieved as they are far too busy finding solutions within the framework of law. Emotions are of no consequence to the courts. But mediation is different. A mediator listens patiently to all the outpours of the party because this is where the mediator can fish for solutions. Emotional outbursts throw hints showing where the common agreement platform is.
Mediation is an art, and nobody knows this better than a family law mediator. At the end of the day, a mediator reaches a mutually agreed settlement based on his unique skills born out of a potpourri of knowledge, wisdom, and intelligence.
By choosing to behave in any of the above ways is to consciously allow a divorce to take on a life of its own, taking the focus away from those issues that are in dire need of attention: the needs of the children, the disposition of assets, the ability to survive financially post divorce, where the parties will live, with whom the children will live, how the family medical and dental expenses will be paid, and how a surviving parent and the children will be cared for should one parent die. At best, the task is daunting; there is no time for unproductive arguing or juvenile jockeying. Lives will be restructured by the divorce; there is no avoiding it. However, if people choose to meaningfully participate in the process they will retain far more control on the outcome and the future of their families.
The role of the Family Law Mediatoris to channel energies positively.
The less a party is able to behave in an appropriate, civil manner, the more the individual ultimately forfeits the opportunity to productively participate in bringing his or her divorce to resolution. When a participant proceeds with civility, however, the right to make life decisions is retained rather than placing it in the hands of a third party; a judge who receives select information and makes a decision based on that limited information. It is as if the judge looks though a key hole of the door to a large room and is then expected to accurately describe the valuable pieces of art hanging on each and every wall. It is simply impossible and at best, a judge’s decision is typically imperfect. Of course the advantage of having a judge make a decision is that it gets done. Yet, even after a judgment has entered and a divorce is final, the unresolved emotional issues that a court cannot resolve remain firmly in place, often with far reaching tentacles capable of impacting the lives of generations to follow. An attorney practicing for decades, for example, may represent multiple generations of family members who remarkably present with very similar marital problems. To add insult to injury, when a judge hears any aspect of a divorce, those hearings usually occur in a public courtroom. The veneer of privacy and dignity is non-existent in a courtroom. Mediation offers a viable alternative to all of this.
The fever pitch commonly associated with the divorce process can become so heated that individuals often waive their rights to participate effectively in the process, largely without realizing the consequences of their angry misbehavior. The courts cope with this problem in a variety of ways: court officers being asked to separate arguing parties in the courthouse building itself, leaving the attorneys in a separate area to negotiate on behalf of their clients; police officers being called upon to assist normally rational adults who simply cannot interact appropriately even for the seconds it takes to drop off or pick up their children; and courts entering orders prohibiting verbal exchanges between the parties in the presence of their children. It is amazing that in a world that is so focused on communication via every possible medium; e-mail, texting and twittering to name a few, people in the divorce arena regularly and voluntarily relinquish the right to express themselves at all, simply because they refuse to do so in a respectful and productive manner. The Family Law Mediator is trained to focus on resolving disputes by keeping the communication on track.
