Family represents a superior form of comunity.- mainly the husband`s, the wife`s and children`s – which is based on social and biological relationships, having the supreme purpose to prepare the future generation healthy and thoroughly educated in order to participate in developing the society.

The family, as a closed group has a special social-psychological structure of interpersonal relationships. In its study, first are the functional connexions between individuals who have specific roles, meaning that they follow certain norms and behaviors of the culture they belong to. The center of the family relationships, as in any other social group is the joint activity towards solving the family`s problems.
