What does it mean to be family-oriented?
It means that someone is oriented around family, taking care of them to provide a stable environment.
Family values are the things that make up an individual’s belief system related to families. These can include beliefs about childhood, parenting styles, sexual relations between parents or other members of one’s family. Values often change as children grow older and parents share their own values with the new generation when parenthood starts again in older generations.
One of the challenges of raising a family entails discussing how to impart your own views on your kids without confusing them with others’ views you have encountered during your own life time — it is possible to sneak past but will not last for long. Family oriented people generally believe in good old-fashioned manners; that good husbands and fathers acknowledge the importance of their families to them, that they will take care of those around them. They work hard to be a positive role model for younger family members.
