Famous quotes containing the word families:

    We now recognize that abuse and neglect may be as frequent in nuclear families as love, protection, and commitment are in nonnuclear families.
    David Elkind (20th century)

    The ideal of the self-sufficient American family is a myth, dangerous because most families, especially affluent families, do in fact make use of a range of services to survive. Families needing one or another kind of help are not morally deficient; most families do need assistance at one time or another.
    Joseph Featherstone (20th century)

    You hear a lot of dialogue on the death of the American family. Families aren’t dying. They’re merging into big conglomerates.
    Erma Bombeck (b. 1927)
