We often hear that the family is the cornerstone of democracy. It"s not only in society but also in churches and schools, that democracy is practiced. However most family is feigning to live the democratic way of life are still only giving lip service to the ideals of democratic living. It is quite expected of family members to possess open-mindedness, critical thinking, deplomacy, self control, and even statesmanship. In most cases, it is most difficult for children to question parental opinion on situation: and for parents, it is far easier to give orders and see that they are carried out, than to submit these to objective family discussions.
