                       FAMILY

A Family is the social unit living together.

MEMBERS OF THE FAMILY

The family is the first stage of man in living together with other human beings. It is the first social unit that is recognized in every society. Family brings people together and grows society.

The members of a family are the father, the mother and children (if there is any)

The family is divided into two

  1. Nuclear Family
  2. Extended family

MEMBERS OF NUCLEAR FAMILY

The nuclearfamily is made up of the father, the mother/ mothers and children (if there is any). Members of a person’s immediate or nuclear family include all persons who have a direct and close relationship with him or her. For example, the nuclear family of a man who is married is made up of his wife and children. Similarly, the nuclear family of a married woman is made up of her husband and children. In the case of a boy or a girl, members of his or her immediate family include his or her parents, brothers, and sisters. In other words, the nuclear family consists of a mother, a father, and their children. This form of family is found everywhere in the world. It is also called the simple family, and it is the smallest family unit.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

MEMBERS OF EXTENDED FAMILY

Extended family is made up of several families who are related by blood. That is an extended family is the combination of different nuclear families. These are grandparents, parents, brothers, sisters, uncles, aunts, cousins, nephews, and nieces. An extended family is a family unit embracing parents, and children, together with grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and sometimes more distant relatives. For example, you belong to the family your father came from. At the same time, you belong to the family your mother came from. You are therefore a member of an extended family. The extended family system is common to all ethnic groups in Nigeria. It is an African way of life.

    Responsibilities of parents to their children and wards

    Parents take good care of their children and wards in the following ways:

    1 They provide the needs of their children and wards. Such needs include food, clothing, and shelter.

    2 They train their children by sending them to school and investing in their education. For instance, they pay their children’s school fees and buy bags, shoes, uniforms, and books for their use in school. They ensure that they study at home in order to perform well at school.

3 Parents name their children when they are born. They give them the kind of names people bear in their family. Sometimes the name shows what parents want the child to become.

4 They teach them to be of good behavior and to respect elders, thereby contributing to their moral development.

5 Parents protect their children from sickness and danger. However, they take their children and wards to the hospital for treatment when they are sick.

6 They advise and teach their children and wards on how to do things properly. For example, mothers teach their daughters and even sons how to cook and clean the house. Fathers may teach their children how to do farm work or how to fix and repair things in the house. If children grow up without parents or guardians to guide them well, they may not be able to learn those things that will make them good and responsible citizens.

 

Responsibilities of children and dependants to their parents

Children and other young members of the family help the parents in the following ways:

1 They go on errands for their parents.

Marriage is the state of being a married couple voluntarily joined for life (or until divorce). It is the union of a man and a woman. Marriage is the union (coming together) of a man and woman to become husband and wife.

Monogamy marriage is one man, one wife. It is having only one spouse (partner) at a time. This type of marriage is commonly found among Christians.

Polygamy marriage is when a man marries more than one wife. The man can marry as many wives as he want but he should be capable of taking care of them. This is common among Muslims and traditional worshippers.

How marriage practices differ from one community to the other

Some communities, especially traditional communities, practise polygamy. One man would marry two or more wives. In polygamy, the man is expected to love all his wives equally. He must cater for them and their children. In many polygamous marriages, the man ensures that each wife has her own room or quarters within the main compound, where she stays with her children. The man may decide to stay in his own quarters, by himself, or he may share it with the first wife. Also, the man must ensure that the family lives peacefully. This means that he must make sure the wives and their children (and even his own relatives) do not quarrel among themselves. Muslims are also allowed by their religion to practice polygamy. The man may marry up to four wives. Some communities prefer monogamy. The man marries only one wife and has children by her. He is expected to take good care of his wife and children. The man heads the family and his wife helps him. Christians and most people who live in large towns and cities, practice monogamy.
