Roles Played By Family

A family is a group of two or more persons related by birth, marriage, or adoption who live together; all such related persons are considered as members of one family. For instance, if an older married couple, their daughter and her husband and two children, and the older couple’s nephew all lived in the same house or apartment; they would all be considered members of a single family.

However, apart from a mother, father, and children, we still have other people who are considered members of a family. 

In some circumstances, the extended family comes to live either with or in place of a member of the immediate family. These families include, in one household or close proximity, relatives in addition to an immediate family. An example would be an elderly parent who moves in with his or her children due to old age. 

In the family, the father performs the following roles:

  1. Providing love and care for the wife and children.
  2. Providing moral guidance for the children.
  3. Supplying the basic necessities of life such as food, shelter and clothing for the family.
  4. Providing the children with quality education.

In the family, the mother performs the following roles:

  1. Giving birth to children.
  2. Cooking for the family.
  3. Keeping the house and the surroundings clean.
  4. Assisting the husband financially when necessary.
  5. Seeing to the moral education of the children.

The children perform the following roles in the family:

  1. Obeying the parents and other adults.
  2. Assisting in performing household chores, particularly in the kitchen, garden and laundry.
  3. Running errands for older members of the family.
  4. Maintaining the good tradition of the family.
  5. Keeping the family name alive.

Just like a father, mother and children, other people in the family love and care for one another, show concern for one another. They Promote peace, equity and justice.
