A family is a unit including the mother, father and the children. Sometimes, there are extended family members. Sometimes, these members of the family live in the same house, but sometimes they don’t. Depending on the situation within the family, this depends on the role of these people. Mothers and fathers often work to be able to pay for the house and everything the family needs to survive.
The children have a different role and they must go to school and obey their parents. Their role involves growing up and becoming a good citizen and person. Each person has a different priority in the family. If children live outside of the home, they may other priorities besides the most obvious.
