Role of Family

Families are a foundational human institution that is found in every society. Ideally, they provide a special type of support that is based on unconditional love whereby your family is completely on your side. Families bring up children and provide social stability. They also play a major role in economics, education, politics and culture. The following are examples of the role of family.
Families also play a immense role in society itself. It could be argued that they outweigh other institutions such as governments and corporations in terms of their overall wealth, economic contributions and influence. For example, in the United States, family businesses produce 54% of private sector GDP according to a broad definition of a family business†.
