A family is a smallest unit of the society,consisting of a father,mother and their children. They have their roles well defined. Like the father is considered as the breadwinner of the family, the mother is the breadmaker of the family and the children are the beneficaries of the baked bread. It would need volumes to define a family, but in a nutshell a family grooms a individual.

A family is a domestic group of people, or a number of domestic groups linked through descent (demonstrated or stipulated) from a common ancestor, marriage or adoption. Families have some degree of kinship.
