For the development of healthy minds of the children the relationship between parents, overall as a family, matters a lot. Family structure makes the health of children. From the past decades, this issue has been under consideration by many of the people. Biological parents pursuing the upbringing of their children are responsible for the physical and mental health of their children. When the families are broken in front of the young children by their parents getting separated there will be a disturbance in the mind of the children. Hence unhealthy marriages affect the overall upbringing of the children. The society should promote a healthy family style giving the people the urge to live their happy marriages.

Education of the children begins at their home. When the family is attracted towards the importance of books and their necessary existence in the lives, then the children will be eventually fond of books. Research has shown that children with books in their families learn more than the children with bookless homes. The professions adopted by the fathers in their family will be the basis for their better future. This analysis in the article has been done through the nations of 27 different countries. All this analysis ended at a single point that more educated the family of the children, the better upbringing and education of the children will be observed.
Sharma, R. (2013). The family and family structure classification redefined for the current times. Journal of Family Medicine and Primary Care, 2(4), p.306.
In most of the social sciences studies the basic unit for studying and analyzing starts with family. Many researchers and analysts have attempted to define family. The definition of family changes from country to country and sometimes even from culture to culture because certain cultures value too much and some don’t pay much heed to the family. In the current time, the changing realities have forced the society to redefine the structure of the family. With the old conventions there was less understanding of the elders with the children in their family, but now the need of understanding is higher. Hence there is a proposed redefinition of family out forward in front of everyone. This definition highlights that these days families don’t always hold common household but their meet and greet sessions are like the before as seen in the old times.
Fomby, P. and Cherlin, A. (2007). Family Instability and Child Well-Being. American Sociological Review, 72(2), pp.181-204.
Past research has shown that the well-being of the child depends highly on the stability of the family. Family structure has gone through multiple transitions in the past years. Starting from living in a common rook and sharing everything to sharing the household chores only under the different roof the family structures have been redefined. In the past where every single person was aware of the problems and issues going on with their family members helped in solving the issues but now different roofs have separated the problems of the family as well. These transitions have affected the well-being of the children as well. They lack the amount of attention they need in their young ages.
Mulder, C. (2013). Family dynamics and housing. Demographic Research, 29, pp.355-378.
Houses of the parents providing good quality for the betterment of their children is the requirement of every person in this society. Safety, security and flexibility provided by the families can never be found anywhere else. Separation of the parents or even from the current family members leads to the destruction of well settled families.
