For istance, as a family tends to have and bring up strong, healthy and disciplined children also society requie loyal, well-balaced and hard-working citizens. It is well understood how the State is interested in promoting the development of honest andd well-balaced families. In our time, all these good intentions have been disappointed, because the State seems just look powerless at destroying of families. The figures that have suffered more than everybody have obviously been the children; firstly because all at once they have grown up without any pattern to believe in, without those values that once were so very important. So they are drifted away and with them all the family has broken up. Nowadays, the family has lost above all its educational characteristics, for which the whole society has found itself diseducated while it could have the opposite phenomenon where the family and society would have completed their respective educations each other. This is the reason why, in the end, by studying the family we can arrive to understand the illness of our society. How can we solve this crisis? It’s important to come back to our traditional values, such as taking time to do something that is meaningful, relaxing and fun to you and your family.together; considering the emotional needs of your family members and, above all, loving your family. Strong families have open lines of communication — where all family members feel heard and respected. One of the best ways to strengthen your family is to increase your listening skills and those of other family members. Until we can hear each other, we cannot build strong relationships.
