What is Family?
We all are like a small seeds sown in the ground as we grow our relations grow and we become a complete tree that tree is called “FAMILY”. Every single relation we cherish we believe in, we look up to be part of our family. The Sanskrit word “VASUDHAIVA KUTUMBAKAM” is a Hindu Philosophy that indicates an understanding that the whole world is one family regardless of race, caste, creed, culture and religion.
Family does not only consist of a mother, father, a child, grandparents. Family consists of people, who support and love you, and the people you can confide in and trust. “FAMILY” may seem simple words, but there is no simple definition of the FAMILY. A family shares emotional bonds, common values, goals and responsibilities. Family is the place where everyone loves you unconditionally family is the first place where we learn how to share; care and respect.
We have prominently seen these common types of families in Indian Culture.
Nuclear Family: Nuclear family is also known as a conjugal family. It is comprised of a married couple and their offspring. Nuclear families play an important role in the development of the personality of individuals. Nuclear family is the most common type of family in the world.
Extended Family: A family consists of relatives in addition to parents and children (such as grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins) living in a single household.
Joint Family: In a joint family, every member makes a financial contribution to the common fund and share common rights in the household property. A joint family comprised of a minimum of three generations: grandparents, parents and children.
Blended Family: If the partners have children from the previous relationship and those children come to live with their parent’s new partner, then such family structure becomes blended family.
