What is a definition of a ‘family’ existing in the biological and psychological sciences: sexual contacts, childbearing and primary socialization of kids. Through biological and psychological family, generations replace each other, the dynasties are preserved. Modern researchers study it as a sphere in which personal needs of a person are satisfied most naturally.
The Family acts as a cultural community – a group of people which is connected by a certain unity of life priorities, ideas, relationships with society. Through the family, generations replace each other, the ideas are transmitted to the generation, the generation replaces the ideas which the family exchanged for the sake of communication, entertainment, and individual life.
During the childhood, parents, as a rule, are aware of their own image, the image of their child, their own future, the possibilities of their sexual behavior, and what the future may bring. Therefore, they act as social leaders, achieve administrative and parental goals, so to speak. In the role of adults, the task of the family is to provide for the upbringing of children, to take care of a elderly parents, to nurture the community.
The era of the family is characterized by a sharp contrast in the hierarchy of values. The primitive values are suppressed and sublimated, in particular, respect for others, parental responsibilities. The modern model of family represents a postulate of the era. The difference between the old and the new type of family is very large. The function of the marriage is to transmit the cultural heritage of the clan through the children.
As the study shows, the modern family is a so-called “family union”. It is both a traditional family and a social institution. Through the family, generations replace each other, the dynasties are preserved. Modern researchers also suggest that the family acts as a “cultural community filtering the discourse of marriage between a man and a woman”.
Institutional values of the modern family are founded on the tradition of “singing” in marriage. The idealization of domestic activities, the provision of moral and emotional support, the high level of family ethics are reflected in the system of family values.
There is a patriarchal family, which is based on a system of values and norms, mutual service and support, the absence of any external authority, domestic and foreign obligations. In this family, there is a rigid division of roles, and the use of personal force is prohibited.
In the modern family, there is a semi-official marriage, which is based on the marriage union and kinship ties. The marriage is the personal union of a man and a woman concluded on the basis of mutual trust and love.
The second important position is the position of children. Girls and boys are ready to take part in the marriage. However, often they are not able to perform the functions of parents, husbands and other counterparts. The cause of child marriages is the unequal gender situation which can lead to the lifelong subordination of girls and women.
The causes of marriage are closely related to the problems of the family as a whole, which, however, are generally considered in the research. The values of couples are formed and maintained by the interaction in the family. The image of children is one of the most important values in the hierarchy of family values.
The second important role is the position of children in the family. They are the ones who, however, are not yet capable of a conscious decision, do not have the ability to make conscious decisions, do not have the skills necessary for self-realization, and therefore, we often have an idea that they “sit on the top” in the family. However, the reality is not always like this. Sometimes, a combination of irresponsibility and unwillingness to take responsibility results in a situation of violence and abuse.
Finally, children are used to show obedience, dedication, and dedication. They are ready to make efforts and make efforts to reach their goals. However, if they have no skills, there is an decision “I will pay to write my essay” instead of “I should pay to write my essay”.
Psychologists believe that the main advantage of marriage is that it is the most stable form of relationships. The idealization of relationships is carried out in the system of moral norms over the period of the puberty period. The change in the value system is manifested, in the change in the sphere of communication with the surrounding reality, which is accompanied by the change in the value system of the individual. The object and the subject of communication undergoes a transformation, and the while the realization of love, the main thing that is happening is the communication of the individual not having any particular special emotional contact.
Therefore, it is not an exaggeration to say that marriage is the most complex form of relationship in the life of every person. Particularly for the young families, which are called orphan families. They are the ones, which were created and develop specifically for the child. Such families are very important for the child’s development.
